   The Open Strategy Network mobilizes research and fosters collaboration on the emerging phenomenon of strategic openness. It is therefore of great interest and value to organizational and strategy scholars, students in business and management, practitioners such as consultants and strategy staff in established businesses, and anyone concerned with new trends in strategy development.

   I highly value the OSN network for its ability to facilitate connections and collaborations among researchers and practitioners, which is essential for advancing the very praxis-oriented research field of Open Strategy. Moreover, the network is particularly beneficial for new researchers in this area as it serves as a valuable resource for gaining in-depth knowledge and insights on the topic.

   Openness as an organizational principle is being embraced by more and more organizations. However, it is important to recognize that some level of closure may be necessary to effectively implement Open Strategies. The Open Strategy Network provides a platform to engage in meaningful discussions and to exchange ideas on this and many other facets of open organizing.

   As a strategy scholar, I find the Open Strategy Network an invaluable resource. The platform provides a great overview of the latest publications, videos, and events related to the topic of Open Strategy. Also, the community of scholars and practitioners organized within the OSN is extremely knowledgeable, which has proven to be of great benefit for my own research.
