Organizations are becoming more open—but that certainly doesn't mean they don't need leaders.

In fact, the demand for effective leadership hasn't abated in the age of the networked organization. If anything, it's increased. But yesterday's leadership strategies and tactics just won't cut it today.

The open organization community at Opensource.com understands this—perhaps more acutely than anyone. So we've written a book about it.

Available now, The Open Organization Leaders Manual is a community-produced companion to Jim Whitehurst's The Open Organization. With contributions from more than 15 authors, it explores new attitudes and practices leaders should adopt when leveraging the power of transparency, meritocracy, inclusivity, sharing, and collaboration to build the workplaces of the future.
