OpenBeam: A "For Purpose" Enterprise

Exploring the building out of Open Beam as a "For-Purpose" entity to support community initiatives. Many social/economical development initiatives suffer from vertical organizational structures that have their origin in the industrial age of emphasizing command and control. Vertical structures are silo in nature and do not facilitate cross structural information sharing and individual accountability. They inadvertently create distrust and thwart innovation. This project builds out the Open Beam entity to demonstrate how a “For-Purpose” dynamic organization works. The result is that Open Beam’s way of doing work becomes a proof point that we should let go of the traditional organizational model and adopt a holacratic framework to mobilize team effort. In so doing, Open Beam will help area non-profit or small organizations become more effective in their governance and their use of cloud technologies.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
