Whether your organization is problem-solving or strategizing, Open Space gets people moving and encourages people to change. When the issue is complex, participants and ideas are diverse, and the potential for disagreement is significant, Open Space Meetings bring people together.
A powerfully effective approach for quickly planning and implementing results, Open Space approach achieves more results in days and weeks than other intervention techniques do in months and years.
Participants design their own passion-driven agendas and collaborate across organizational boundaries, ensuring that solutions and change are borne out of responsibility, motivation, and ownership.
Time To Grow Global can help you facilitate Open Space Meetings if:
- A complex or critical organizational issue is being addressed;
- Efficient and effective cross-functional collaboration is important for success;
- Cooperation and/or alignment is required from participants with diverse ideas; or
- Plans, solutions or organizational directions must be achieved within a limited space of time.
Open Space Meetings typically form part of a larger sequence that is tailored for your team’s unique requirements.
- Larger-scale Inclusive Strategizing sequences, where collaboration, feedback, and input are required from multiple teams, departments, and organizational levels.
- Bottom-up idea generation for change, innovation, and problem-solving; and
- Boosting engagement around big hairy audacious organizational challenges.
These will involve:
- Between 15 and 500 participants from your organization or value chain;
- Parallel working sessions with self-determined agendas that center on a theme of strategic importance; and
- The two key principles of passion and responsibility.
