NEWS FLASH: The most influential management consultant in the world, Gary Hamel, has THIS to say about mandated-from-the-top change in organizations:

Build a Change Platform, not a Change Program (article link)

“…What’s needed is a real-time, socially constructed approach to change, so that the leader’s job isn’t to design a change program but to build a change platform—one that allows anyone to initiate change, recruit confederates, suggest solutions, and launch experiments.” -Gary Hamel (bio link)

Prime/OS is that socially constructed program, for bringing fresh cultural values & ideas into your organization. Watch these short videos to see the results…

Pictures of Actual Open Space Events:

Posting a flyer or handbill in common areas (kitchen and hallways, and entrances/exits) is essential. These links send you to pictures you can use to develop your flyer:
