  • Open Space Guidelines

    Open Space Guidelines

    Bring your topic to Open Space and you can run an informal session on any topic you’re passionate about.
     
    How do I propose an Open Space session?
    ·        Think of a topic
    ·        Take an index card and a marker
    ·        Write your topic at the top of the card
    ·        Write your name below – so people know who’s running the session
    ·        Post your topic on the Marketplace (sticky wall) picking a timeslot and location.
     
    Open Space runs by four simple organizing principles:
    ·        Whoever comes is the right people
    ·        Whatever happens is the only thing that could have
    ·        Whenever it starts is the right time
    ·        When it’s over it’s over
     
    Use the Law of Two Feet to take responsibility for following your own passions. If you feel that you are not contributing or benefitting from a session, please feel free to move on to something else. Remember it’s self-organizing so….prepare to be surprised.
