Open Space Technology

This methodology can be used as the format for a conference, retreat, meeting or community gathering.

It is not recommended to add Open Space into an event at the beginning and then move to another method / dynamic -- rather, it is recommended that if Open Space is to be part of (not the entire format for) an event it should be designed for the end section, such as a last day of a conference (for participants to process what they've learned, share ideas and resources and network).
