Effective engagement is what Open Space Technology does naturally.

What is Open Space Technology?

Open Space Technology (OST) is a proven, effective meeting methodology that engages individuals and groups in collaborating to create solutions to pressing, often complex issues.

Developed by organizational consultant Harrison Owen, from Potomac, Maryland, USA, Open Space Technology facilitation creates an open environment that captures the knowledge, experience and innovative capacity in the organization that is not captured through less open processes. It also creates the conditions for an organization to utilize the potential of the workforce, inspire growth in organizational performance, and to learn to use the chaos in the organization to work for you rather than against you. The Open Space Technology process taps into the collective wisdom of the group resulting in solutions and outcomes that are felt immediately and are often surprising.

As organizations utilize meetings and conferences as a primary way of connecting people to accomplish tasks, it is imperative that meetings be "opened up" in terms of appropriate structure and process to really get the work done that is needed for organizational excellence. Individuals need to be brought together quickly in ways that removes the constraints of inappropriate structure and control. Open Space Technology achieves this.
