Developed by Harrison Owen, it taps into the spirit of an organization like no other large or small group intervention can. It is now used around the world to enable organizations to learn and achieve beyond their expectations with a simple and even playful approach. Based on clear principles and values, Open Space creates an environment for innovation, problem solving, creativity, teamwork and rapid change. You can learn to "open the space" to engage the full energy of your workforce, to inspire growth and exceptional performance, and to flow with the chaos that will inevitably strike when rapid change is required again."
