Our approach to establishing openCoLab is via client projects where some members participate and while others are invited to observe via a show and share model.
This is based on the logic that structure / process follows the work.
As we come together, learn and explore, we build trust and reciprocity; out of which emerges opportunity and projects. We apply and build out our infrastructure and tools as we go.
Through relating and our relationships we create opportunity.
Our operating principles during this instigation phase are based on a common sense and simple fairshare principle of what you get out depends on what you put in (plus a small contribution to a shared commons).
For the openCoLab, this Strategy captures the essence of the future of work and cooperative collaboration to solve real world problems rather than push products.
