“What does Open Source Thinking mean for how we work as facilitators of conversations, ideas and change?”
This AMED/IAF initiative explores the potential of Open Source Thinking (OST) for personal and organisational development.
OST can be viewed as an emerging process by which information and other precious resources are shared openly, for general benefit, whilst crediting their 'owners'. We sense that OST is changing our world, both in structure and process. The Editorial of our Spring 2013 edition of e-Organisations and People (e-O&P) here on OST gives an overview of some current issues.
Come and join us with an open mind, prepared to act by turn as guest and host.
WHAT HAPPENS ON FRIDAY 2 AUGUST?
Morning: Refreshments on arrival. Welcome and briefing by your co-hosts Rosemary Cairns (IAF) and Bob MacKenzie (AMED). ‘Opening up to Open Source Thinking: Walking the Labyrinth’, with Alison Piasecka, preparing ourselves to enter fully into the spirit of Open Source Thinking.
Afternoon: ‘Practising Open Source Thinking’. Drawing upon Open Space principles, Patrick Finn traces his journey towards OST, helping us to explore its potential applications, conditions and contexts for our work as facilitators. Proposals for follow-up, and farewells.
Evening: Optionally, pub/cafe conversations, followed by dinner at Food for Friends, cost about £20.
