Synopsis: The Open Organization - 2nd Edition. The Open Organization is a template for the 21st Century Organization and The Future of Work. The 21st century launched with great volatility and a level of cultural and global diversity unknown by previous generations. This instability demands new approaches and methods for the delivery of products, services and ideas. We can no longer afford to run organizations with 19th and 20th century ideas. The pressures of shifting demographics, culture and technology require new approaches to organizational leadership and structures. Welcome to the era of the Open Organization. The Open Organization: A New Era of Leadership and Organizational Development, by Dr Philip A Foster, is divided into three distinct parts; the first explores the foundations of an Open Organization, covering the evolution of leadership and organization theories from the beginning of known time through to the 21st century; the second discusses the elements of such an organization, presenting the ecosystem of an Open System with its structure, culture and decision-making functions, while the third examines the 21st century organization, questioning ’who should go Open’ and reviewing the reality of creating this type of organization, understanding control and resistance and addressing the matter of bringing about change.

About the Author: Dr Philip A. Foster holds a Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership (emphasis in Coaching and Mentoring) and a Doctorate of Strategic Leadership (emphasis in Strategic Foresight). He is a Thought Leader in Business Operations, Organization and Strategic Leadership and an Adjunct Professor at Middle Tennessee State University. He has over 24 years of experience in both government and the private sector. This includes over 13 years as an executive in manufacturing, media, and business consulting. Philip has extensive knowledge and experience developing and delivering curriculum at both corporate and university level, as well as significant experience of developing policies, procedures and corporate structures. He serves as a consultant and board adviser to several not-for-profits in Middle Tennessee.
