Open Space Technology (sometimes called Open Space) is a self-organizing practice that allows diverse people in any kind of organization to create meetings and events with a difference. It is known to stimulate positive energies and achieve useful, well-documented results. Participants of an open space event create and manage their own agenda of parallel working sessions around a central theme of strategic importance. By inviting people to take ownership and responsibility for what they care about it stimulates the emergence of the inherent creativity and leadership in people, establishes an ideas marketplace of reflection and learning. The technique can be used to work with groups - some say between 5 to 800 people, for events of two hours to several days. It works best when work to be done is complex, the people and ideas involved are diverse, the passion for resolution (and potential for conflict) are high, and time is very limited.
