Open Space is a dialogue tool that generates communication, collaboration, innovation for groups large and small.<br />
Step One<br />Your PD Rep and Administrator team will ask you to select the big question from the list of nine choices that most interests you. <br />
Step Two<br />On September 27th, in your “Big Question” group, write issues about the question on a piece of paper.<br />
Step Three<br />Post the issues on the “market place” wall.<br />
Step Four<br />Group similar ideas to create breakout groups.<br />
Step Five<br />Gather with the smaller group interested in the same topic.<br />
Step Six<br />Report out what you learned in your small group to the larger group.<br />
There are a few “laws” that you should know.<br />
Use the “Law of Two Feet”<br />If it is not serving your needs use your two feet and move.<br />It is not being rude!<br />
It’s Okay to be a Bumble bee<br />In Open Space, Bumble Bees go from meeting to meeting.<br />It is important to cross-pollinate our meeting with information from other groups.<br />
It’s Okay to be Butterfly<br />Butterflies may spend a lot of time flying around by the coffee table.<br />Butterflies are not being lazy.<br />
Don’t be a Giraffe<br />Giraffes are people who want to use their two feet, but are afraid of being seen as rude.<br />Giraffes are not helpful in Open Space.<br />
Before September 27th….<br />Your PD Rep will give you a form to check which question you are most interested in.<br />Email Jan Thorsen– email@example.com – if you would love to help. <br />
