principles by Ray Dalio and embracing radical transparency

By Ash Richardson

Principles by Ray Dalio

radical transparency was made famous by Ray Dalio’s book Principles.

Ray Dalio champions the principle of embracing thoughtful disagreement. The ability to exchange controversial ideas without causing problems.

To achieve radical transparency at work, companies need collaboration tech that has been designed from the outset as an org-wide experience. Tech that helps employees with their day to day work, as well as the overall strategic context and corresponding initiatives.

Radical transparency delivers on the new social contract of millennials:

First show me you are committed, then you’ll see my commitment!

Imagine if radical transparency could sit within an easy to view strategic context:

  • Why is our organization here? (a la Simon Sinek)
  • What are we trying to achieve? (a la Prof Roger Martin)
  • How are we going to get there? (cascading strategy tree)
  • How are we going right now? (live collaboration at every level in the strategy tree)

This would allow every employee to embrace and contribute to what their CEO, executives and managers are trying to achieve.
