Open Space Technology: A User's Guide by Harrison Owen Summary: The aim of this book is to provide a step-by-step journey into Open Space. It begins by detailing all the practical considerations necessary for creating Open Space, and addresses the question, should you do Open Space at all? Types of situations are examined to illustrate which are appropriate for OST and which are not, and issues such as supplies, logistics and who should come and how to go about getting them there are explored. The electronic connection is also examined, this enables the creation of instant proceedings, simultaneous multi-site gatherings and more. Finally the reader is taken step-by-step through an Open Space event. Synopsis: Open Space Technology: A User's Guide is just what the name implies: a hands-on, detailed description of facilitating Open Space Technology (OST). Written by the originator of the method - an effective, economical, fast, and easily-repeatable strategy for organizing meetings of between 5 and 1,000 participants - this is the first book to document the rationale, procedures, and requirements of OST. OST enables self-organizing groups of all sizes to deal with hugely complex issues in a very short period of time. This practical, step-by-step user's guide details what needs to be done before, during, and after an Open Space event.
