Learning about OS happens differently for different people. Some just pick
up a copy of Open Space Technology: A User's Guide and get started.
Participating in an OS can also help to create some understanding of what it
actually looks like in practice. And there are workshops.
After reading an article about OS, Harrison's workshop was my starting
point. What it gave me was a sense of the original thinking Harrison
brought to the creation of Open Space. I came away with a respect for the
spirit that informs OS. I continue to find that context valuable.
You can find upcoming training information on the Open Space Institute web
site at www.tmn.com/openspace
There is a session coming up in Monterey from November 17-21. You can
contact Nancy Wolfberg at 415-726-0872 or wolf1724 at aol.com for details.
Harrison Owen will be leading this session.
There is also a workshop coming up Nov 30 - Dec 3 in Cleveland that will be
conducted by Birgitt Bolton and Larry Peterson, both long-time
practitioners. Birgitt's contact information is: 905-648-5775 Fax:
905-648-2262 birgitt at worldchat.com Further details about the workshop
are on the OSI web site.
You might also consider attending the Open Space on Open Space that is
happening in Monterey on November 14-16, right before the workshop. OSonOS
is a practitioner gathering where people bring their questions and their
experiences of OS. The details are also on the OSI web site.
