For the past few years at Red Hat, we've been grappling with the challenges of growing an open organization and sustaining our culture along the way. One tool we've been developing and testing is the Open Decision Framework, a collection of best practices for applying open source principles to business projects and decisions.

Today, we're publishing community version 1.0 of the Open Decision Framework under a Creative Commons CC-BY-SA 4.0 license. All the files are available on GitHub.
