Create an open system

Create an open system

There are two requirements of an open system.

  1. The Software Development Kit (SDK) is documentation and tools to supplement and tweak a product.
  2. The Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) is information on how to access the various functions of a product.

A non-tech example is an open system school that enables parents to teach courses and provides a manual for parents on how to teach.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

If you create a great product, communities will inevitably form, with or without your help.

A community needs an identifiable hero and inspiration from within the company.

Most people are oblivious to communities forming around their product.

Companies often feel great if their communities continue to say nice things and buy their products, but if the community says anything negative, the company will retract their community efforts.

Discourse or verbal exchange should be encouraged. Any company that fosters community building should participate in exchanging ideas and opinions.

Your product should be "customisable," "extensible," and "malleable." Consider Adobe Photoshop. Without the company's plug-in architecture, a community might not have developed quickly.
