In One Thousand and One Nights, Ali Baba discovers a magical phrase that opens a cave of treasures. While we may not have such magic in this world, we can still utilize the power that openness brings when making decisions or leading projects and people.


Open Decision Framework is a flexible, open approach to making business decisions and leading projects. An open decision is one that is transparent, inclusive, and customer-centric. Based on open-source principles, this approach is especially useful when considering decisions that will affect the company culture or broad groups of employees.


Discover how to use Open Decision Framework as a way to align decisions with company strategy, goals, and mission while shedding light for your “customers” — the people in your organization — about how these decisions are made. Walk away with a better understanding of how to:

·        Build trust and respect through better collaboration

·        Gain support to implement changes more rapidly

·        Identify ideal business scenarios for utilizing this unique, customer-centric approach
