If you haven’t picked up a copy of Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst’s book on building a $2 billion dollar company the open source way, below are 3 ways to get a signed copy. It’s a great read for your flight home from Summit. (Here’s an excerpt on the Harvard Business Review blog.)
THE OPEN ORGANIZATION BOOK SIGNINGS:
Location: 1st floor of the Hynes Convention Center (in the Innovation Awards hallway)
Dates: Tuesday, June 23rd, from 8-9 p.m.; and Wednesday and Thursday June 24-25th, from 2:30-3:30 p.m.
The open source development model is not just a better way to build software–it’s a better way to work. Transparency. Community building. Responsiveness. All of these qualities can be applied to the way we do business today.
Here’s what people are saying about the book:
Jim Whitehurst’s interesting tale of his own reinvention as a leader, with lessons from other leaders in companies such as Whole Foods, Pixar, Zappos, and others, finally provides the blueprint that leaders have been seeking.Chris Anderson, cofounder and CEO, 3D Robotics; former Editor in Chief, Wired magazine
But at Red Hat, an open organization, community is all, and community is ultimately about individuals. By celebrating the latent greatness within its community members, Red Hat fosters rabid employee devotion. This is a lesson any company can apply. Matt Asay, Infoworld Tech Watch
