Open Space Technology is one way to enable all kinds of people, in any
kind of organization, to create inspired meetings and events. Over the
last 20+ years, it has also become clear that opening space, as an
intentional leadership practice, can create inspired organizations, where
ordinary people work together to create extraordinary results with
regularity. Join us for a special evening of conversation with Harrison
Owen, the originator of the Open Space process.

Open Space Technology: A User's Guide details all the practical
considerations necessary to create Open Space. Owen examines what types of
situations are appropriate for Open Space and what types are not. He goes
on to look at nuts-and-bolts issues such as supplies, logistics, who
should be involved, and how to go about getting them there.

This Third Edition adds a survey of the current status of Open Space
Technology around the world, an updated section on the latest available
technology for report writing (a key aspect of the Open Space process),
and an updated list of resources.

Harrison Owen is the winner of the 2008 Sharing the Wealth award from the
OD Network. The award honors the memory of Kathie Dannemiller, a major
force in the founding of OD Network, and the author of a Berrett-Koehler
book, Whole Scale Change. It is given to "an individual whose achievements
demonstrate their values, innovation and generosity."

Thanks to Berrett-Koehler for generously underwriting a portion of this
author evening.

Part of a series of events in San Francisco:
Open Space Technology Training: July 21-22
World Open Space on Open Space conference: July 23-26
