To support the posts so far. Open Space technology that I had the privilege to be part of seemed to be just the right thing as it reflected many of the values that are present in the various cultural and religious practices in the society that I shared. Because it is so your client may be looking for the Western World simplistic imposed solutions. You challenge may be the fact that everyone has an equal space, every idea is welcome, complexity is seen as a natural component of the issues and opportunities and that there may be confronting, challenging and radical suggestions. Opening space has the promise of gleaning the ideas, suggestions, issues that are within that business community so the sponsor must be able to accept this and in their opening, enabling address must sincerely convey this to the participants. So when they step back the participants are ready to post their topic without hesitation. The social structures in India often mean that various sections of the community are excluded as they are members of the other class or cast. This will be the major barrier to getting the whole of the business involved and therefore major issue in engaging other sections in any change the event using Open Space Technology “invents”.
Best of luck, if you mission is based on pluck you will succeed if on luck success is optional

>> Greetings OST World Community - from the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico ~
>> I have a potential client in India (a tech company) and it would be very helpful to be able to provide them with some companies, institutions or organizations that have used Open Space in India in recent years. Meaning more recent than the original event in Goa - which I have mentioned to my client.
>> They have the idea that it is an 'American' thing and therefor may not work as easily with Indian participants.
>> If any of you who have facilitated OST in India are willing to share where you did it/who for, I would be most appreciative!
