  • 15 differences - [1]
    • Some notes - Employees like structure while entrepreneurs like infrastructure.
  • OSE policy is to cultivate entrepreneurship, not employees. If, legally, it is not possible for a given opportunity with OSE to offer entrepreneurship - then the employee relationship is structured to be entrepreneurial in as many ways as possible.
  • According to OSE principles, creating employees is not a good thing for civilization. It is the last resort, if a person cannot be brought up to at least some level of entrepreneurship. Thus, it is the goal of any positive agent to create opportunities for entrepreneurship - and always be vigilant as to not create a dependence mindset.
  • In general the difference between an employee and an entrepreneur may not be clearly defined.

Some Principles for OSE to Follow

  • Employees set their own pay. This is not a freebie - this is about responsibility. For a person can set their pay only based on outcomes. With higher outcomes comes the duty of higher capacity/ability. Thus, someone who sets a higher pay must grow to or use a higher level of skill set, capacity, or efficiency that substantiates the higher pay. Simply so that the enterprise does not go under. Essentially, the employee says to the boss - "I want to get paid X." The boss says, "You need to do Y in order for me to get paid X." In this relationship, the various Ys are correlated clearly with various Xs.
  • Infrastructure - Infastructure is set up for collaborators - a collaborative relationship replacing an employee relationship. Here are X resources. Make them work. In fact, pay me for those resources and then you take the profits. But publish everything, since we are open source.
  • Internship - We'll hire you after you finish. We offer different tracks of learning. You tell us how much you want to get paid, and we'll train you accordingly.
  • Cooperative - a cooperative is “an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly owned and democratically-controlled enterprise”
