OpenBeam's purpose is to help build communities where opportunity and responsibility are broadly shared.  We do this by contributing to community-based projects that are aligned with our purpose:
  • By using our Beam Search tool we capture and "beam up" community assets to enable connectivity and to promote collaboration. 
  • By offering professional skills in project management, business process analysis and technology usages we help organizations to:
    • Catalyze and streamline their business processes to improve productivity
    • Clarify goals and measurements to actualize changes and accountability
  • We act in order to:
      • Build human capacity 
      • Enable collaboration
      • Activate technology adoption and usage
      • Model a connected way to work
  • We explore the use of Holacracy as an operational model and walk the walk of being TARP -- Transparent, Accountable, Responsive and Process driven.
