Open Space (Part 1)

Open Space is about an invitation. It is an invitation you can opt-out on. “Whoever comes are the right people”. If you show up, you are one of the right people. You opt-in to Open Space. No one makes you show up, except YOU.

The Agile community uses Open Space the same way kids play with matches. It’s acknowledged that the thing has power, and by playing with it, we admit we do not how to use it.

Open Space is about the transformation of teams, departments, divisions and entire enterprises. It’s about the transformation of entire groups of people; this includes volitional, intentional communities of practice.
