Open Talent Platform Collective


Open Assembly has created the Open Talent Platform Collective to help open talent platforms grow their business. It is a community of like-minded platforms devoted to advancing the thinking and practical application of open talent strategies. Members join for their dedication and leadership in the transformation of work through open talent. This group meets monthly to guide, shape, and design the language, processes, and tools for the industry, in a collaborative effort to raise the tide for everyone co-creating the future of work with open talent.

The Open Talent Platform Collective will focus on research, benchmarking, and knowledge sharing, as well as creating a common language and a common process so platforms can thrive by utilizing research from the Laboratory for Innovation Sciences at Harvard, the Open Talent book, and the enterprise adoption work we do at Open Assembly.

Collective members are front-and-center for client, content, and research opportunities as we help organizations with their open talent strategies, building a Center of Excellence, and implementing digital solutions.

In order for something like this to take hold it has to be a top down supported initiative but it grows through bottom up success.
