By Don Tapscott & Anthony D. Williams
Radical Openness (2013)
Four Unexpected Principles for Success
All over the world, the way people connect and collaborate is undergoing an astonishing transformation as a result of one idea: radical openness. Smart organizations are shunning their old, secretive practices and embracing transparency, widely sharing intellectual property and collaborating on an astronomical scale. And movements for freedom and justice are exploding everywhere as organizations like Wikileaks spread information faster than ever before.
In their compelling new book Radical Openness: Four Unexpected Principles for Success, Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams show how this revolutionary new philosophy is affecting every facet of our society, from the way we do business to whom we choose to govern us.
But while radical openness promises many exciting transformations, it also comes with new risks and responsibilities. Tapscott and Williams ask: How much information should we share and with whom? And what are the consequences of disclosing the intimate, unvarnished details of our professional and personal lives?
This TED book is based on Tapscott’s talk from TED Global 2012.
