Here is a report on how open space transformed the way of doing business 
in the German Agency "YOUTH or Europe" over a ten year period.
It has been published as an E-Book (it contains the report in six 
languages, including English), here is the link

I am certain, that it will not satisfy the powers that are all about 
"evidence  base" since it is a story told by the CEO of the outfit, not 
a so-called scientific investigation.

My take on this is that there is no existing approach to capture what 
open space is all about, starting with the force of selforganisation, so 
I am not sure your "evidence base" crowd will be happy with this narrative.
