I fell in love with this stuff back in 1994 when Harrison "trained" me in the concept and use of Open Space over a three-day period, on lovely Bainbridge Island, Washington.

It is SO much more widespread and known-about now than it was 14 years ago. I don't know why it is not in common (as in "this is just how we do things around here") usage everywhere.

remember Transaction Analysis .. I'm OK, You're OK ? Parent-Adult-Child in each of us.

Today organizations and bosses are still the "parent" and many (most) people who work are the "child" ... no adult-to-adult permitted in the work place .. why. you'd have discussions and arguments and all that stuff.

Open Space is adult-to-adult in real-time practice ... and it has worked well every single time I have ever used the approach / process.
