An open method

A royalty-free method

The participants in the initiative for an open method share the same conviction that a method must be widely shared if it is to be of use. This is why they have chosen to make the findings of their work in methodology available to all. In some cases, they have contributed generic models or architectural choices to this open-source body of work.

The method documents and training supports are systematically published on the Praxeme Institute website. They are made available to the public.

An open method

The method is under construction. The methodological guides have prepared the groundwork. We must now build upon these foundations, notably by using the guides to detail the procedures (methods). Some procedures exist but much remains to be done. One way of developing the method is via the integration of the elements provided by the contributors. Indeed, the method is open, that is to say that it can be enhanced by exogenous contributions, providing that these contributions respect certain rules and are able to be integrated within the overall method framework.

This openness applies to practical experiences as much as to theoretical contributions, coming from the world of research.


Although the documents are made freely available, they are nevertheless legally protected. The Praxeme Institute has chosen the Creative Commons license, which covers intellectual works. This does not affect the royalty-free nature or usage rights but does require that either Praxeme or the author of the document is quoted, on a case-by-case basis.

In return, we expect users to:

  • respect the Creative Commons license;
  • make themselves known to the Praxeme Institute so that it can evaluate how the methodology is spreading;
  • support the initiative for an open method by ensuring as wide a publicity as possible for it.

These obligations condition the dynamics of the initiative. At stake is the development of a serious and independent response to the transformation needs of enterprises.
