The field of open strategy research arises from increasing interest in the phenomenon of openness in strategy research and practice, and how this presents a radical change from established theories of organisational strategy. In light of these developments, this conceptual paper demonstrates how web based collaborative tools are being utilised to enable collaboration and knowledge sharing in open strategy initiatives, with evidence derived from an emerging stream of open strategy literature. A concise overview of this literature is also introduced to give background to the topic. Ultimately the paper uses case examples to show how organisations are practicing open strategy, whilst also highlighting the potential for open strategy as a device for organisational collaboration and knowledge sharing, both internally and externally.
