Open Space

Talking circles in the workplace

Open Space Technology (OST) is a facilitation technique designed to capture the synergy and excitement that tends to be present in a good coffee or lunch break. OST, the brainchild of Harrison Owen, is designed to tap into the spirit of an organization, to engage employees in an open dialogue regarding their hopes and dreams and to capture the collective intelligence every organization has.

As organizations continue to ponder how to engage their employees, OST offers a unique opportunity for involving employees in finding solutions, planning the future, mining organizational wisdom, and gaining commitment.
