First of all, what is transparency? It is a buzzword thrown around carelessly and often times it's hard to understand the meaning of transparency and especially its worth. The politically correct version is: Transparency is operating in such a way that it is easy for others to see what actions are performed.

So, let us see what are the 10 reasons why every leader and manager needs more transparency and also what are the 5 steps to increase it.
