Open space enables groups of 25-500 people, in any kind of organization, to create inspired meetings. Meetings without a predetermined programme, just a central theme of importance. Starting from an empty agenda, the group generates its own topics of parallel working sessions at the start. This creates ownership and ensures that the meeting is filled with issues that are of real concern to the participants.
Open Space lets go of control in favour of self-organisation.
Open Space allows everybody with an interest to get involved. It contributes to sustainable change, thanks to broad ownership, better understanding, more diversity, creative and fitting solutions, faster and longer-lasting implementation and decisions that are supported by the largest possible number of stakeholders.
