Open Space

What is Open Space Technology?  Open Space Technology – most usually referred to simply as Open Space or OST - is a very useful and powerful way to enable all kinds of people to create inspired meetings and events, drawing on the huge wealth of experience, ideas, creativity and engagement to think and talk through matters of interest, often business improvement, business performance, challenges, change and so on. Over the last 30 years, it has also become clear to many, that opening space can help not only groups of people to think through their challenges and opportunities, connect with others and come up with mind-boggling brilliant and innovation solutions, but that open space can be a very valuable part of creating an inspired leadership culture, where people can more easily and effectively work together to create extraordinary and sustainable results.

Share via: 0 Shares “Igniting Creative Ideas for Positive Societal Transformation” Raniban Foundation in collaboration with Eastern Research Institute of Positive Science (ERIPS) is organizing a Two-Day Youth Summit on “Appreciative Inquiry for Positive Youth Development” with the slogan  “Igniting Creative Ideas for Positive Societal Transformation” on 19-20 September 2018 in Pokhara, Hotel Raniban Arcade. In Nepal 50% population of the country is occupied by the youth. They are the potential reservoir of the country’s transformation. This country can achieve anything if the positive potential of youths could be unleashed effectively. To unleash their positive potential and inspire them to tap their potential and create the miracles for the human kinds, we need to explore new ways to inspire, encourage, stimulate and motivate for developing them as transformative and responsible positive leaders of our society. Appreciative Inquiry is worldwide accepted approach to ignite the creative ideas for positive transformation.

Which is the best mindmapping software? - WikIT

Which is the best mindmapping software? - WikIT | Art of Hosting | Scoop.it

I track discussions about mind mapping on Twitter and in blogs, and I often hear or read the question "Which is the best mindmapping software?" Anyone who gives you a single, immediate answer either knows you and your mindmapping activities very well, or is likely recommending the one that they've become familiar with themselves. Contents What's "best"? What is "best" depends so much on how you use mind maps. Some people use them for study, some for planning projects, some for organizing information, some to spark ideas and facilitate brainstorming sessions, some while planning the writing of a report or blog post. Some mindmap alone, others mindmap in groups. Most of us probably do all of these from time to time, so we need a quiver full of arrows to choose from. Here you will find recommendations, some free and some not so free. Myself, I mostly use Xmind, 3D Topicscape Pro (naturally, as much of it is my design), MindManager, MindMeister and CMAP depending on what I'm doing.

What Is Open Space Technology? | OpenSpaceWorld.ORG | Art of Hosting | Scoop.it

Open Space Technology is one way to enable all kinds of people, in any kind of organization, to create inspired meetings and events. Over the last 20+ years, it has also become clear that opening space, as an intentional leadership practice, can create inspired organizations, where ordinary people work together to create extraordinary results with regularity. In Open Space meetings, events and organizations, participants create and manage their own agenda of parallel working sessions around a central theme of strategic importance, such as: What is the strategy, group, organization or community that all stakeholders can support and work together to create? With groups of 5 to 2000+ people — working in one-day workshops, three-day conferences, or the regular weekly staff meeting — the common result is a powerful, effective connecting and strengthening of what’s already happening in the organization: planning and action, learning and doing, passion and responsibility, participation and performance.

Cynefin framework - Wikipedia

Cynefin framework - Wikipedia

Cynefin offers five decision-making contexts or "domains"- obvious (known until 2014 as simple), complicated, complex, chaotic, and disorder-that help managers to identify how they perceive situations and make sense of their own and other people's behaviour. The framework draws on research into systems theory, complexity theory, network theory and learning theories.
