  • Geschiedenis Harrison Owen beschreef Open Space Technology voor het eerst in de 80er jaren. Intussen zijn er duizenden facilitators over de gehele wereld opgeleid die de methode toepassen. In het nederlands-talig gebied is de methode al een kleine tien jaar bekend, maar wordt hij met name de laatste jaren vaker toegepast. De op de slide genoemde ‘succesful examples’ betreffen voornamelijk congressen, maar ook enkele verandertrajecten, zie blog van Ben Linders.
