Open Kollab Vision

  1. 1. Vision and Growth Strategy<br />OpenKollab<br />
  2. 2. What is OpenKollab?<br />A social venture with who`s mission it is to connect projects to solve massive social problems!<br />A scalable open collaboration ecosystem<br />An example of a scalable, distributed organizational structure (an ecosystem)<br />A virtual organization<br />A fertile community to connect with innovative and progressive thinkers<br />A research and intelligence group<br />A active real time discussion space<br />An innovative investment banking model: collaborative investment banking!<br />As a social venture we will:<br />Deliver social value<br />Be financially sustainable<br />No doubt you are wondering... How can you be all of that at the same time?... Well....<br />
  3. 3. OK Vision<br />
  4. 4. Values and Principles<br />Openness: low (no) barrier to participation<br />Transparency: information and intellectual property in the public domain<br />Radically Inclusive: we actively invite people to participate in our communities.<br />Radically Collaborative: we actively seek to align ourselves with others<br />Active Documentation: we document as much as possible – facilitates transparency and visibility and forms the basis for or consulting processes.<br />
  5. 5. Mission: Connect Projects To Solve Massive Social Problems<br />Building Ecosystems<br />Building Technology Platform<br />
  6. 6. OK Operating StructureBuilding Ecosystems!<br />OK Ecosystem – service offering provided by ecosystem in aggregate<br />Ecosystem Pooled Fund<br />Ecosystem Development Consulting<br />Ecosystem Research<br />
  7. 7. The OpenKollab Ecosystem<br />OpenKollab<br />Forward Foundation<br />P2P Foundation<br />
  8. 8. The What,Why and How of Ecosystem Development<br />Building Ecosystems<br />
  9. 9. What Is An Ecosystem?<br />A natural set of relationships between a group of projects that makes it possible that they collaborate!<br />Share common goals: ‘Solve climate change problem!’<br />Are a part of a value chain: supplier manufacturer, distributor<br />Share common team members<br />Share common customers or markets<br />Etc<br />Manufacturer <br />Supplier<br />Distributor<br />
  10. 10. Characteristics of Ecosystem ProjectsBalance between Autonomy and Synergy<br />Autonomy<br />Are autonomous legal entities<br />Have independent brand<br />Have independent missions, goals etc.<br />Have independent information systems <br />Have separate teams (although overlap a possibility)<br />Synergy<br />Share sub-project(s)<br />Shared some goals<br />Share some technology infrastructure (project management, collaborative research, simultaneous publishing, etc.)<br />Finding this balance is the essential problem in cross boundary collaboration!<br />
  11. 11. Connecting Projects Within anEcosystem<br />Climate Change Ecosystem<br />Project I<br />Project II<br />Connect via common technology infrastructure and collaboration processes<br />Project III<br />
  12. 12. Connecting Ecosystems?<br />What are the points of confluence?<br />Climate Change<br />Dist. Man.<br />Open Gov<br />
  13. 13. Why Build Ecosystems?Functional Perspective<br />Connect Projects To Solve Massive Social Problems<br />Need To Connect Larger Organizations with Early Stage Social Ventures<br />Need To Build Capacity for Projects Providing Social Value<br />Need Innovative Funding Models To Finance Early Stage Social Ventures<br />BUILD MATURE ECOSYSTEMS<br />Note that this will be source of consulting revenue<br />BUILD EARLY STAGE ECOSYSTEMS AND FINANCE VIA POOLED FUND<br />
  14. 14. Why Build Ecosystems?Timing Perspective: the state of affairs<br />Internet connectivity penetration rates are increasing<br />Bandwithlimitations are being reduced<br />The cost of communication is dropping (thank you Skype!)<br />Interoperability protocols, applications etc. are evolving<br />Social networking platforms (Facebook...) are changing the culture of communication <br />Processing power is being pushed to the edge of the network (Smartphones etc.)<br />The real time infrastructure is evolving (Twitter)<br />
  15. 15. Information flows freely across organizational boundaries<br />Geographic constraints are less meaningful<br />Structural limitations on information management don’t constrain participation (thousands of people can work on projects!)<br />Meetings can be run virtually<br />Projects can be managed asynchronously<br />Projects can be scaled to involve many people with minimal incremental cost <br />Your communications infrastructure can be scaled to include many people with minimal incremental cost<br />Why Build Ecosystems?Timing Perspective: the result<br />
  16. 16. Why Participate In EcosystemsThe Benefits of Visibility and Transparency<br />Better understanding of your context<br />Networking opportunities<br />Business opportunities<br />Information flow<br />
  17. 17. Building Ecosystem Capacity<br />Project I<br />Project II<br />Project III<br />Ecosystem Pooled Fund<br />Ecosystem Consulting<br />
  18. 18. What is the OK Ecosystem Pooled Fund?Collaborative Investment Banking!<br />Provide loans to social ventures <br />Drive Collaborative Transactions by funding Groups of Projects that work together<br />Develop Ecosystems by bringing groups of smaller projects together and providing financial and consulting services<br />Provide consulting services to help projects prepare projects for financing and to ensure their success.<br />Note that this model merges traditional corporate finance, merger and acquisition and advisory services into one ; collaborative investment banking!<br />
  19. 19. Advantages of Collaborative Funding Model<br />Technical due diligence handled by peers<br />Scale mitigates risk<br />Mutual accountability<br />Support network of peers (like Grameen model)<br />
  20. 20. What is Ecosystem Consulting?<br />Information about projects within an ecosystem that:<br />Drives Collaboration<br />Goals, needs, resources, relationship etc. (See Project Matching Presentation)<br />Supports Scaling of Projects<br />Information will be ecosystem specific, for example in the Distributed Manufacturing ecosystem, we have identified the following Scalability Variables:<br />Is your output part of value chain? It is easy to use output of project as a building block towards building other things.is your design modular? - designed for interoperability<br />is your product replicable? - released under an open license, shareable online via a clone-able repository. <br />Project consistently applies a local standard. (designed for interoperability)<br />Sharing parts and suppliersProject is sufficiently visible in the network.<br />Note that this data supports Project Matching<br />
  21. 21. What is Ecosystem Research?<br />Domain specific intelligence that arises out of work conducted in developing a particular ecosystem<br />Models and processes that can be abstracted from work conducted in several different ecosystems<br />
  22. 22. How Are Ecosystems Developed?<br />Identify large (macro) ecosystems; distributed manufacturing, open Government, climate change, local foods etc.<br />Engage a number of projects in the space<br />Identify candidates for the Ecosystem Pooled Fund (if appropriate)<br />Identify candidates for Ecosystem Consulting Services<br />Establish preliminary collaborative processes<br />Google Groups, real time chats<br />Establish collaborative infrastructure as necessary<br />Implement consulting services as necessary<br />
  23. 23. How Are Ecosystems Developed?<br />
  24. 24. How are Ecosystems Connected?<br />Common Technology Infrastructure<br />Collaboration, project management etc.<br />FLOWS based interoperability<br />Collaborative research<br />Common Projects and Processes<br />Mutual support network<br />Coordinated business strategies<br />Marketing strategies<br />Referral exchanges<br />Network development (work to build industry associations etc.)<br />
  25. 25. Ecosystem Development<br />Early Stage Ecosystems: OK will work with groups of early stage social venture projects to form financeable ecosystems.<br />Mature Ecosystems: OK will work with larger organizations to help them to identify and develop their own ecosystems.<br />(Note: this will be the revenue generating component of the consulting practice)<br />
  26. 26. Ecosystems Under Development<br />Early Stage Ecosystems<br />Distributed Manufacturing<br />Local Foods<br />Mature Ecosystems<br />Climate Change<br />
  27. 27. What if 100,000,000 people were working together to solve the problem of climate change?<br />The OK Platform Vision<br />
  28. 28. Platform Strategy In Development<br />We are currently putting together the platform team and crystallizing our vision: <br />Details on the vision can be found in the following presentations:<br />Open System Mobilization Platform<br />Ecosystem Collaboration Platform<br />Project Matching<br />(Presentations will be forwarded up request)<br />
  29. 29. OK Growth<br />
  30. 30. OK Communications Infrastructure<br />Central to the OK mission is to maintain visibility through actively driving dialogue via a number of communications channels.<br />Blog: http://wiki.openkollab.com<br />Wiki: http://mudball.net/openkollab/<br />Google Group: http://groups.google.com/group/openkollab?hl=en<br />Facebook Group: http://www.facebook.com/openkollab.<br />LinkedIn Group<br />
  31. 31. OK Ecosystem Communication; listservs<br />
  32. 32. OK Revenue Model<br />Pooled Fund Management Fees<br />Consulting Fees: Mature Ecosystem Development<br />Target for profit as well as not-for-profit clients<br />
  33. 33. Building the OK Consulting Practice<br />Early Stage Ecosystems<br />Mature Ecosystems<br />General idea is to document and develop competencies on ecosystem development and to market these to larger organizations to help build ecosystems around their organizations<br />
  34. 34. Scaling the OK Network<br />Aggressive Outbound Communication<br />Active social media channels<br />Active on ecosystem listservs<br />Development of Ecosystems<br />Build ecosystem teams (those within ecosystems willing to work with OK)<br />Build connectivity as OK participates in communications infrastructure which is ever expanding<br />Aligning with Ecosystem Partners<br />
