Open Space Technology

Open Space Technology (OST) offers a method to run meetings of groups of any size. (“Technology” in this case means tool — a process; a method.) OST represents a self-organizing process; participants take responsibility for constructing the agenda, leading and attending sessions during the meeting itself. It is one way to enable all kinds of people, in any kind of organization, to create inspired meetings and events. With groups of 5 to 2000+ people — working in half-day, one-day workshops, or three-day conferences, participants create and manage their own agenda of parallel working sessions around a central theme of strategic importance.
