Red Hat launches community version of Open Decision Framework
The framework will aid decision-makers in improving communication, collaborate more efficiently across distributed teams, as well as mitigate unintended impacts across projects.
Global provider of open source technologies Red Hat has recently launched the community version of its Open Decision Framework.
Serving as a collection of the company's best practices for managing projects, the framework will aid decision-makers in improving a number of facets of their operation.
This includes improving communication, collaboration across distributed teams, as well as mitigating unplanned impacts across operations.
Red Hat hopes to empower business leaders and project managers through the Open Decision Framework. This will be achieved by enlightening users on the lessons learned by the company, as well as encouraging the sharing of viewpoints back to the community.
DeLisa Alexander, executive vice president and chief people officer, Red Hat, shared: "We created the Open Decision Framework to articulate the lessons Red Hatters have learned by trial and error, based on our experiences working both at Red Hat and in open source communities."
She added: "We're excited to launch this community version so that others can adapt it to fit their own organizations and projects, and share their improvements upstream."
The Open Decision Framework will take advantage of the five open source principles by putting them into practice, all the while sharing easy-to-follow steps for teams to follow and contribute.
The framework's files will be readily available on GitHub, while the platform itself is accessible under a Creative Commons CC-BY-SA 4.0 license.
