At what occasions are Open Space Workshops used?
Open Space Technology is a lively process, allowing small or large groups of participants to invest in the visualisation of a common subject or a collective problem, in the search for solutions or the creation of new possibilities, developments and techniques, and so on.
Examples of this are:
- Getting a picture of what people within the organisation are really committed to.
- Exploring new issues and possibilities.
- Motivating a culture of independent working and decision-making.
- Developing creative, innovative or problem-solving plans and techniques.
- Stimulating community spirit.
- Analysing and solving differences of opinion or serious conflicts.
- Embedding new processes and procedures in organisations.
- Remotivating people when things become disordered.
