WIKI: Open-space technology
Open Space Technology (OST) is an approach to purpose-driven leadership,[1] including a way for hosting meetings, conferences, corporate-style retreats, symposiums, 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. Self-organization[edit] Seen by proponents as especially scalable and adaptable, the OST event format has been used in meetings of 5 to 2,100 people (in self-discovery work for smaller groups or even individuals[2]). The approach is characterized by a few basic mechanisms: The approach is most distinctive for its initial lack of an agenda, which sets the stage for the meeting's participants to create the agenda for themselves, in the first 30–90 minutes of the meeting or event. Typically, an "open space" meeting will begin with short introductions by the sponsor and usually a single facilitator.

ESPACIO ABIERTO - PASOS inviting faster, easier organization – everywhere For many, Open Space has been a daring and marvelous exploration of the vastness and the urgency of personal and organizational transformation. For others, it’s just an exceedingly effective, and efficient, meeting methodology. Welcome to a slice of all of that… Join us later this year for Open Space on Open Space world practice conference in Tainan, Taiwan on October 26-28. After thirty years and literally millions of invitations and actions, small meetings and large events, conversations and publications, organizations and adaptations – in more than 140 countries – the Open Space story can get a bit messy. OpenSpaceWorld.ORG doesn’t own or control any of that and couldn’t possibly define, evaluate or curate it all.

Marketplace, Open Space Technology La dinámica Las 4 Reglas y la Ley Dinámica: Viaje al Futuro Guía: La Tecnología del Espacio Abierto Gracias a la observación, en una conferencia se origino la idea de que las partes más útiles de las conferencias formales tomaban lugar durante los 'descansos para el café,' el formato OST utiliza tanto los lineamientos no ortodoxos así como los creativos. Una de las reglas mas interesantes es 'La ley de dos pies,' la cual dice que si las personas se encuentran en situaciones donde no están ni aprendiendo ni contribuyendo con nada, ellos son responsables de moverse hacia otro sitio - usando sus dos pies para encontrar un lugar donde su participación sea mas significativa. Esta simple regla mantiene a los participantes comprometidos en hacer que la conferencia sea interesante. 1. 2. 3. 4.

WEB - OPEN SPACE - TRANSITION NETWORK Belief in external experts and our dependence on their telling us what to do next has become commonplace. However, much of what we need is around us. We need ways to unlock the knowledge and ideas of our community. Two approaches often used by Transition groups are World Café and Open Space. The following information will help you run sessions on them. Open Space Technology[i] This is for groups from 10 to 1,000 people who need to explore a major issue. Whoever comes are the right people.Whatever happens is the only thing that could have happened.When it starts is the right time.When it’s over, it’s over. ...and one ‘law’, ‘The Law of Motion and Responsibility’: “If, during the course of the gathering, any person finds themselves in a situation where they are neither learning nor contributing, they are invited to use their feet and go to some more productive place.” Step-by-step guide to running an Open Space event Open Space is great for gathering ideas that lead to practical projects.

Espacio Abierto INTRO Resumen The evolving Transition ingredients card game At my workshop at the Transition Network conference I tried out a new teaching tool for Transition initiatives, a deck of cards designed around the ‘Ingredients of Transition’, as set out in the forthcoming ‘The Transition Companion’. On one side of the cards is a photo that captures the spirit of the ingredient and its name, and on the other side is the problem the ingredient is a response to and the solution it represents. Here, for example, are both sides of the ‘Coming together as groups’. Doing the 'mingling' exercise with the Ingredients cards. My sense, prior to the workshop, was that they might serve as a useful tool for initiatives. Studying the cards in a circle... For the second game, people got into groups of 10-15 people, and dealt the cards out between them. Laying out the story of a Transition initaitive using cards... Each group laid the cards out in a different way, but kept with the same idea of creating a storyline of how their initiative unfolded.
