Open Design Processes within the Enterprise
And I got to thinking, wouldn’t it be great if the organization I worked for “opened up” its architecture and design work for broad consumption, sharing, and feedback/contributions for interested parties across the enterprise. This would require both shared enterprise “spaces” where ongoing design work – in business design, process design, and product design – was made visible/transparent to the enterprise, and enterprise collaboration processes that “plugged into” these shared design spaces.
Is this a good idea? It seems to be a common approach across open source projects, but I’m not aware of this approach being applied broadly within enterprises.
Any thoughts or comments on this approach?
