  3. 3. Open What? <ul><li>OpenSpace is a way for people to gather, exchange ideas, learn and contribute in a self-organising way. You could compare it with a conference with only coffee breaks, where generally the most interesting exchanges occur. </li></ul>Jaibeer Malik http://jaibeermalik.wordpress.com
  4. 4. How? <ul><li>Everybody comes together in a central place. The host presents the theme, the rules (not many) and the mechanisms. Then whoever has a subject he or she would like to discuss, he stands in the center of the circle, shortly introduces the subject and chooses a time and a place on a big board called the &quot;marketplace&quot;. People then separate out into breakout locations. </li></ul><ul><li>The &quot;slots&quot; are only there to provide some structure. It does not matter how long a session takes. It could be ten minutes, it could be all night. It starts when it starts, and it ends when it ends. </li></ul>Jaibeer Malik http://jaibeermalik.wordpress.com

  7. 7. Roles <ul><li>Host: Hosts a session, documents the results </li></ul><ul><li>Participant: Shows up for a session, supports the host </li></ul><ul><li>Bumblebee: goes from session to session, cross-pollinator </li></ul><ul><li>Butterfly: can not currently find a session to learn or contribute. So just sits and beautifies the Space. </li></ul>Jaibeer Malik http://jaibeermalik.wordpress.com
  8. 8. Be prepared to be surprised <ul><li>Be prepared to be surprised is a statement that asks you to be open to new impressions, opinions: to keep an open mind and try to look for things that surprise and delight you. </li></ul>Jaibeer Malik http://jaibeermalik.wordpress.com
