How Freedom Within Framework Can Liberate Businesses

Successful businesses in the Open Source Era are now structuring their guidelines around a set of values (what is important to them) and purpose (what they want to achieve). When values and purpose become a living set of guidelines, they provide employees with a clear and positive sense of what they can and cannot do. This encourages employees to thrive – leading to greater employee engagement, increased. innovation and ultimately, the success of the business. Astute leaders build their organisations around the concept of Freedom Within a Framework. In general terms, Freedom Within a Framework means providing employees with a context for behaviour and performance. It establishes flexible parameters that give workers a sense of control and ownership over results. Conceptually, this is made up of two defining parameters: freedom and framework. Freedom, first and foremost, means trusting employees. It is about believing that if you give employees the latitude to think, make decisions and act on behalf of the business, they will choose to do the right things. Framework means providing employees with a set of guidelines (values & behaviours) within which to work.
