Move past the buzzwords to deliver real business value, quickly.

The Open Practice Library is an open source, community-driven inspired library of best practices and tools.

It helps individuals, teams and entire businesses figure out the optimal ways to get to the best outcome.

That can mean a lot of things to a lot of different kinds of people. And the Open Practice Library can help all of them.

- A product owner who needs to build the right thing, the right way.

- A stakeholder who needs a roadmap to deliver metrics-based business outcomes.

- A team lead who wants to get everyone’s input toward and aligned to the same goal.

For everyone, these practices are created, tested and shared by the people who use them day-to-day. The practices are for the people looking to be inspired with new ideas to create better experiences. And anyone who wants to find innovative, proven ways to solve their challenges, big and small.

Our process model

All of the practices in this library can be mapped to the Mobius Loop - a navigator created by an open source community that generates a continuous flow of innovation from discovery, to design, to delivery.

Practices can be mapped to one of four parts of the loop:





Foundation - we have found that cultural practices and technical practices in the foundational layer, accelerate and maximize the use of the Mobius Loop.
Discovery - practices to help define target outcomes.
Options - practices to help identify the path to the right outcomes
Delivery - practices to put your ideas to the test. Learn what works and what doesn’t.


No great open source project is without great collaboration.
