Our Philosophy in Publishing

Author:開放智慧 / Open Quest

Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

There is not one single right answer in doing group work because each group has its own unique dynamics and journey. In the practitioners’ community, mentoring is the main vehicle to pass on experiences. Sharing amongst practitioners became quite essential. Since 1970s, practitioners began to publish their learning and insights extensively in the field, not only about theories but also heavily on the implementation and field experiences in business, government agencies, non-profit organizations. This field of organizational development is actually a cross discipline of management, psychology, sociology and systemic studies.

The logo of Open Quest Publishing is a twist of our company logo in flat version, meaning to pass on wisdom through publishing materials. We aim to introduce practical tools that could be used in organizations and teams, especially the “how-to” books. Each book has its own coloring system based on its essence. The philosophy of Open Quest Publishing is to build a bridge to help Chinese speaking practitioners to see farther on the shoulders of giants in the field.

To enhance your reading experience, we invited professional commercial designer to infuse art and design factor in the editing and design of the book.

To fulfill the need of HRM and team developers, Open Quest has been introducing professional master pieces since 2005. So far we have published: “The Thin Book of Appreciative Inquiry”, “Open Space Technology--A User’s Guide” and “Facilitator’s Guide To Participatory Decision-Making”. We will continue brining new titles in the field. Join our newsletter for more updates!
