Open space technology or welcome to the world where the lack of an agenda is not a synonyme of lack of focus.

January 7, 2011

“If at any time you find yourself in any situation where you are neither learning nor contributing: use your two feet and go someplace else.” Isn’t it gorgeous?

Open Space Technology (OST) is an approach for hosting meetings, conferences, corporate-style retreats and community summit events, focused on a specific and important purpose or task—but beginning without any formal agenda, beyond the overall purpose or theme. Twenty-five years later. Harrison Owen, The man who discovered what he called later “open space” in the bottom of his martini, still did not patent the idea in any way. The Open Space World Map (http://www.openspaceworldmap.org) documents that these events have taken place in more than 160 countries. It is the best approach for sharing knowledge between free and good headed-hearted people : minimizing bureaucracy and time, maximizing productive learning. Great spirit for great people. The ideal way of working in fluid and dynamic world of ideas and innovation.
