The Role of Open Source Leadership in Developing High Technology Companies
The paper seeks to propose the concept of sustainable enterprise simulation models. The social, environmental and economic models are developed and simulated using iThink in the context of a high technology (high-tech) company. With the rapid growth of Social Networks [, Open source applications are increasingly invading the world of Web. High-tech companies must adapt to the world of open source, by the people who work in them, until their products. The paper has leveraged the systems dynamic paradigm to conduct sustainable enterprise modelling and iThink system to implement the models. It uses the design science research methodology for the proof of concept of the models and modelling processes. The models have been developed for a high-tech company and tested in the business settings. These models were finalised through a number of revisions and iterations of the design, develop, simulate, test and evaluate. While leaders have been around for thousands of years, we have attempted to show how the old rules of leadership [ are no longer helpful in dealing with the new games of the 21st century. In the high-tech companies we studied, we discovered patterns of leadership practice that not only yielded remarkable results, but also created a deep sense of meaning and identity for those involved.
