Organisational participation is a critical consideration in the examination of open communities. Many open communities are no longer the domain of solitary individuals but have come to include organisations representing many of the largest financial interests across a variety of economic interests. Organisations seek to participate in open communities for reasons of leveraged development, economics and flexibility but participation is not a simple task. In this chapter, we explore what the primary motivations are for organisational participation in open communities. We follow this with considerations of how organisations participate once they have determined to engage with open communities. This chapter provides a glimpse of why and how organisations participate in open innovation communities and provide insights valuable for both practical and academic interests.
