Code of conduct

  1. As we are a true network of people, not a loose “community of interested people”: We expect every member of the network to contribute actively to the joint Reason for Being and to work together on joint Beta-related projects (listed below). Contributing and working together, in this context, means being active beyond individual business interests or personal reputation gains.
  2. We believe that everyone can contribute to organizational and societal progress, We believe that everyone can be a “researcher.” In the spirit of the above, and of our mission, we expect members to contribute to relevant research, which means systematic questioning, connecting, synthesizing. articulating, publishing, elaborating and sharing of Beta-related content.
  3. To join a research project (or other network project), or to setup a new project, your mastery must match the project’s requirements. Consult others already involved in an existing project, if you want to join. Consult our “guides” (indicated below) or peers with appropriate mastery to judge your project proposal, in order to start a new project.
  4. We expect every member of the network to also contribute financially to the joint work, every year, at least symbolically. We hold each other accountable with regards to these financial contributions.
  5. Our work results are open source – which includes (and not ignores) that we deeply respect content creators. We mention content creators by name, whenever possible, as we make use of their creations. We do this mentioning both internally and externally, both in writing and in talking, and we do this consistently.

This code of conduct was added in December 2022

Get to know our ongoing work projects and meet current members

This section is currently under construction, as we are changing our way of operating the system of membership, during December 2022 and January 2023. If you want to become a BetaCodex Network associate yourself, first join our group on Slack and join our LinkedIn Group, in order to connect to other members. Then join a work project, or create a new work project! All this will naturally require collaborating with other associates, and consultation within the network.


Research Project 1. The OpenSpace Beta Commentary

About this project: This group will work long-term to make more in-depth findings around the use of OpenSpace Beta available – starting in early 2023. The task is to extract specifications, special features and meaningful interpretations for practice from field work with the OpenSpace Beta approach. All group members were involved with OpenSpace Beta processes, in active roles. This peer work serves to provide insight for new practitioners of OpenSpace Beta. The format or formats in which the research results will be published and successively extended is to be clarified.
Participation requires relevant and proven practical experience with OpenSpace Beta, as well as willingness for continuous and reliable collaboration in the project.
