Re: [OSList] Bulletin Board vs. Marketplace

2020-04-27 Thread Jeff Aitken via OSList
Interesting exchange. I put a lot of attention on the spaces where
breakouts will happen, and the entire space of the event where butterflies
and bumblebees will do their thing. Like a "manager" of a village market
with its stalls and gathering spaces getting filled by vendors and visitors.

For me, the negotiations of time and space begin at the bulletin board, but
are enacted ongoingly in the open space. So I'm curious now about the
marketplace being considered as the shaping of the board (the menu) and
maybe less as the enacting of the space (the meal.)

Good learning always.

Worth a try, it's double work, depends on the number of participants. It
might or might not create a huge discussion about creating the perfect
agenda... yawn...

Anyway, time and place can be changed at any point during the process...

Re: [OSList] Bulletin Board vs. Marketplace

2020-04-26 Thread Bhavesh Patel via OSList
I am not sure if I got your point and:

   - For me the Bulletin Board is where people stick their ideas, and also
   select a time and place.
   - For me the Marketplace contains the Bulletin Board and is also where
   people discuss, start moving around, start discussing whether topics should
   be merged or not, where they start checking out what has been named
   already, etc.
   - So the Marketplace is the container that holds the space for all that
   happens including the Bulletin Board until people decide to go to sessions
   or somewhere else... and then the Marketplace remains open as people come
   and go until...

Re: [OSList] Tool for virtual marketplace?

2014-09-29 Thread Ben Roberts via OSList
I’ve simply used Google docs or a similar platform—“hackpad-- that I like a bit 
better for creating a series of linked pages very quickly. These can be 
simultaneously edited by a group of people, and changes show up immediately 
without the need to refresh one’s screen. The downside is that they are 
basically “blank pages,” so you must create structure within them, and rely on 
participants to follow directions (or post things for them).

 

As it happens, I’m hosting a virtual open space (or perhaps more accurately, 
“open space-inspired”) conversation tomorrow morning at 11am US Eastern using 
hackpad and conference calling. It’s for organizational partners of the Charter 
for Compassion International. Since it’s only a 90 minute call, I’ve opened the 
marketplace in advance. We have the option of allowing more topics to be 
initiated on the fly as well, and I’ll make that call by taking the pulse of 
the group when the time comes. You can see the online space here 
http://www.bit.ly/cfc093014  (and there is also a link there to register for 
the call, if you want to join us). People calling from overseas might want to 
try this free VOIP tool 
http://maestroconference.zendesk.com/entries/23434887-MC-Dialer , which works 
well with the MaestroConference platform we are using for the call.

 

Peace,

Ben

Subject: [OSList] Tool for virtual marketplace?

 

Hi

We are tryibg to organize our first online OpenSpace for our agile community in 
Chile. 

We are starting organizing a virtual marketplace, where proponents could post 
their themes and explain them to interested people before the online OpenSpace. 

Is there any tool that could serve to do that? 

Greetings from Chile 
Agustin

Re: [OSList] Tool for virtual marketplace?

2014-09-29 Thread Ben Roberts via OSList
I’ve simply used Google docs or a similar platform—“hackpad-- that I like a bit 
better for creating a series of linked pages very quickly. These can be 
simultaneously edited by a group of people, and changes show up immediately 
without the need to refresh one’s screen. The downside is that they are 
basically “blank pages,” so you must create structure within them, and rely on 
participants to follow directions (or post things for them).

 

As it happens, I’m hosting a virtual open space (or perhaps more accurately, 
“open space-inspired”) conversation tomorrow morning at 11am US Eastern using 
hackpad and conference calling. It’s for organizational partners of the Charter 
for Compassion International. Since it’s only a 90 minute call, I’ve opened the 
marketplace in advance. We have the option of allowing more topics to be 
initiated on the fly as well, and I’ll make that call by taking the pulse of 
the group when the time comes. You can see the online space here 
http://www.bit.ly/cfc093014  (and there is also a link there to register for 
the call, if you want to join us). People calling from overseas might want to 
try this free VOIP tool 
http://maestroconference.zendesk.com/entries/23434887-MC-Dialer , which works 
well with the MaestroConference platform we are using for the call.

 

Peace,

Ben

[OSList] Invite to OS hotline skype - Tuesday July 16, 12pm EDT - AND intro to Open Hotline Marketplace

2013-07-15 Thread Tricia Chirumbole
Hello all!

You are warmly invited to participate in an OS hotline skype tomorrow,
*Tuesday,
July 16th at 12pm EDT*.

*Purpose: *This call is for all OSers and OS friends to discuss whatever is
up for them at the moment in the realm of OS - questions, projects,
thoughts, etc. A few new items follow:

*Invitation: *This week, we are including an invitation for participants to
*suggest a theme *for the call. The following link has a spot for *two
themes *to be suggested - these can be areas where you'd personally like to
get some input into your practice, or OS themes of a less personal vein.
if you've got something on your mind, we welcome you to write it into
the spreadsheet.

*Sign up and Open Marketplace:
https://docs.google.com/a/investorswithoutborders.net/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AsXdTUUjiQHOdEJYUXF1ejY0TnAtd2I5RE05YWZJUUEusp=sharing
*

This link should take you to a spreadsheet where you can:

   1. Sign up for tomorrow's skype
   2. Suggest a theme
   3. Add in a new column to initiate another call at a different time or
   date - the idea is that this sheet will always be available for anyone to
   initiate an OS conversation and invite the community to participate any
   time or day of the year.

*Please note: *This experiment is open to any and all modifications
suggested or desired by the community - feel free to suggest modifications
to the spreadsheet or to the process.

Additionally, please let me know if you have questions or any issues
accessing the spreadsheet. Thank you!

Re: marketplace

2006-10-19 Thread Chris Corrigan

I stay in the room usually, at least for the first part of the marketplace.
The reason is because I love watching it happen.  I stay out of the way for
sure, tidying up coffee cups, maybe grabbing my laptop and typing out to the
topics so that I look busy enough that no one will bother me.  But I love
watching the crowd self-organize...it's almost my raison d'etre.

I did take a nap once...it was the morning I opened space for OSonOS IX here
in Vancouver, but in that case I had our dear friend Laurel Doersam at my
back, and she offered to hold space while I slpet off a bad headache.

That day I slept in a little lounge near one of the breakout spaces, in full
view of the crowd of comedians that had gathered with us in Vancouver.  As I
drifted in and out of sleep, curcled up on a couch, I heard several chuckles
as folks clued in to what I was doing, paying homage to Harrison, who was
unable to join us, in my own small way.

Re: marketplace

2006-10-15 Thread Harrison Owen
Sheila -- I can certainly understand your confusion! In my case, there is a
question that I constantly ask myself during an OS -- What do I need to do
for myself so that I can be fully present for the participants when needed?
For example, after the opening there is a high liklihood that I will be more
than a little pooped. I start early making preparations, and the opening
itself is a very high energy situation for me. When we get to that point
that all the participants are going to the Wall for sign-up and
negotiations, I really need a break, and of equal importantce, they don't
need me. And as a matter of fact, my physical presence can actually be a
detraction to the whole affair. If I am around (visably) folks might
reasonably expect me to make some order out of the chaos. I know that I
can't do that, and more to the point, I shouldn't even try. And most
important -- the folks can and will create their own order -- which is what
self-organization and Open Space are all about. So I do leave the room --
and even take a nap.

I can understand that taking a nap may seem to be a complete cop-out and
derreliction of duty, but I don't think so. I have found that even when
sound asleep I am somehow in real communication with the group. Most often
I just sleep peacefully, but there have been occasions when I just knew
that my physical presence could be helpful. I have learned always to trust
the intuition and just follow my nose -- which always seems to take me to
the right place. Once there (whever there is) doing something is usually
beside the point, but really BEING THERE can be most helpful.

After a few more Open Spaces, you will discover that there is a more or less
predictable flow -- with long space/times when you can go and take care of
yourself. This is not selfish, but sensible, I think. If you are a wreck,
there is not much chance that you can be fully present when needed. This is
especially true in very high conflict situations. Most of the time, the
people will take care of themselves, but there are moments when you focused
presence can be critical. And you have to be in good shape to really pull
that off.

Hi there, 
I am an open space neophite so my questions must be taken with that in 
mind.  I confess that I am having trouble understanding the consistency 
between leaving the room only to return at the end of the session for 
evening news, and the necessity to hold time and space.  Here, it 
appeared that the facilitator was to remain around but not visible - doing 
all those small tasks that keep the space safe and comfortable for those 
busy beavers working away in the breakout sessions?

Can you provide some further enlightenment - and encourage as I find the 
notion of leaving a hard one!  Call it the value for money proposition 
that I occassional face (albiet not in an OST environment) - e.g. Sure am 
paying a lot of money and what are she really doing?  She isn't even in 
the room!

I have more basic questions but will post these separately along with an 
introduction!

RE : Re: marketplace

2006-10-15 Thread louise
Hi Sheila,
  Here is my 2 cents on stay around or not stay around.  My experience 
of OS is that it is very much the same as any creating  experience, order from 
chaos. As a facilitator, I stay around untill I feel the  level of anxiety is 
not high enough to prevent the group from self-organizing.  This is sometime 
when the group is up and grouping around the marketplace and  someone turns to 
me and asks how to do it. This is time for me to tell them  that they have 
everything they need and leave the premisses. Then they can use  the creative 
tension we have built when the facilitator walked the circle and  participants 
stated their subjects of interest, to create their agenda.
  Another example why I tend to not stick around too much, let’s  say 
that I bumblebee and butterfly a lot. At some point, while bumblebeeing,  I was 
sitting in the room with a group. When I felt tension mounting, I walked  out 
and sat where anyone who would need to, could come and talk. After a few  
minutes, someone used the law of two feet and came to me, quite angry, at me  
first because I wasn’t there to control (save ?) them. I told her that if I was 
 in the room controlling them, I couldn’t be here to hear her. She agreed. It  
happened that the tension was around some covert conflicting attitude 
preventing  the group from accomplishing what they really want to do, and how 
to. The OS  gave enough room for the conflict to invite itself in plain sight 
for everyone  to see. This event gave the opportunity to the group to 
self-manage the conflit  over time. I wonder if they could have, if I had been 
in the room, instead of  being available to listen to someone who
 became the champion to confront the  conflict and have the group the 
possibility to resolve it.
  But again, I believe it is personnal to each facilitator. There  is a 
fine line that you can feel, if your are present and invisible, between  too 
much anxiety and rediness for the group to self-organize. Reckognizing this  
fine line tells you when to go. If you feel you need to control or find it hard 
 to be in the room, sitting at the edge of your chair or pacing nervously  
around, and fighting pitching in, then it may be better that you butterfly or  
bumblebee, for you and for the self-organization of the group. 
  OS is a natural process, there is always someone to lead the  way to 
the marketplace if the group need to.
   Hope my 2 cents provide you some help.


Sheila Beauchemin s.beauche...@shaw.ca a écrit :  Hi there, 
I am an open space neophite so my questions must be taken with that in 
mind.  I confess that I am having trouble understanding the consistency 
between leaving the room only to return at the end of the session for 
evening news, and the necessity to hold time and space.  Here, it 
appeared that the facilitator was to remain around but not visible - doing 
all those small tasks that keep the space safe and comfortable for those 
busy beavers working away in the breakout sessions?

Can you provide some further enlightenment - and encourage as I find the 
notion of leaving a hard one!  Call it the value for money proposition 
that I occassional face (albiet not in an OST environment) - e.g. Sure am 
paying a lot of money and what are she really doing?  She isn't even in 
the room!

I have more basic questions but will post these separately along with an 
introduction!

2006-10-15 Thread Jack Ricchiuto

Yes Sheila, the way Harrison describes the role we play is provocative
compared to other more directive models of facilitation we may be accustomed
to. What has always been powerful for me over the years in OS is the
reminder that the attitude we bring to the uniqueness of the process is
what our clients get for their investement. They cannot pay us for our time
because neither they nor we can own time any more than we can own space.
If you've ever seen people like Harrison, Peggy, Lisa, or Chris open space,
you easily realize that our clients pay us for the same kind of
transformative being that is conveyed in the transmission between Zen
teacher and student.

I love your reminder Harrison of our presence even as we sleep because it
speaks to the quantum reality that the quality of our energy cannot be
contained or expressed - it flows ceaselessly however we're enagaged. The
paradox is that the intrinsic awakeness that we bring to the party can flow
out even as we nap, as an inhale between exhales. The reality for me is that
if I'm working with any few in a large group, I may as well be napping as
far as everyone else in that moment is concerned. The ground of truth here
again always points back to the quality of being and becoming that is my
value-add to the process.

Have a lovely day, Jack

Re: marketplace

2006-10-15 Thread Joanna Fletcher
Just wanted to echo Jack here. As I learn more about leadership and
coaching, either with groups or individuals, it becomes clearer that what I
do or say is far less important than who I am being. When I am holding
myself and everyone else as creative, resourceful and whole, my impact is
felt on a level that is often unconscious, but no less effective for that.
It feels easy, effortless, meant to be. 

 

The great thing about this is that it extends to when you are selling the
whole OS concept. When I am excited, and really believe that OS is the
answer, and know in a way I can't explain that this group is ready for it,
it comes across no matter what I say or do. I probably give more energy and
time to it, and that certainly has an impact. And, my belief in some way
creates the possibility for the event - when I am sleeping, talking,
listening, crying, dancing...

 

So I suppose what I am trying to say is, just go for it..as long as you know
in your bones it is needed, you already have everything you need to succeed.

 

Much love,

 

Joanna Fletcher

I am one of those who stays in the room.  

 

At the start, after I invite participants to post their topics in Opening
Circle and the Agenda co-creation time, I often sit back down in the circle
to hold space that way as they create their marvelous meeting topics.  

 

Although sometime(s) during the day I will usually take a walk around the
building as a way to have a sense of place and a sense of the day, fresh air
- to breathe and to notice the beautiful things just outside the room, I
feel I hold space best by being in the room for most of the meeting -
totally present and completely invisible as I clean up plates and coffee
cups from the floor, breathe, replenish materials in the discussion areas,
breathe, help the Newsroom Coordinator as needed, breathe ;o) and so on.

 

You will find what fits for you, I know,

2006-10-11 Thread Juliane Ade
dear colleagues,

I facilitated an open space and after the participants announced their
issues, while I openend the market-place, I realized my body wasn´t sure
where to stand/go:

I had left the circle and was now in what I call the room in between:
outside the people`s circle and inside the line of the principals;  while
talking I moved forward, so that I stood in one of the aisles, on the line
of the circle and at one point I moved a little back into the circle, but
not very deep; when I ended with the words that from now on everything will
be self-organized, I was back on the circle-line,  before drawing back
completely.

I had one moment, when I didn´t feel comfortable, in the beginning of the
market-place, when I stood behind the people, in their back, and one moment
when I felt unsure, when I moved back into the circle.

One reason for this I know: there was not as much space between the circle
and the pin-boards, as is good for my feeling of space and I didn´t
have/take enough time before the beginning of the os to get adjusted.

But this experience raised a general question in me – actually I caught my
mind wandering for a nano-second while opening the market-place, where I
really want to go as the facilitator during this part of the os-introduction
and why; and I realized I couldn´t remember how I and others have done it, I
only had this image in me of a wider circle, a wider space…  –  so, now I am
curious to hear of  the ways you do it, and your thougths about  it.

Greetings from Berlin, where we enjoy a wonderful golden Fall!

Subject: RE: marketplace

 

Julian – this one is an easy one. At least it always is for me. After I get
to the point where I invite everybody to go and sign up (enter the market
place) – I just leave. Gone. Out of the room. Without a word. And depending
upon my mood and needs, I either take a long walk. Or more usually, I take a
nap. Sounds like an odd thing to do at that time of day (presuming a morning
start), but under normal circumstances I will have been up for a while
preparing myself and the space. And by the time I have finished opening the
space I need a real break. Nothing like a good nap!

 

And the good thing about naps (outside of getting you refreshed and ready
for the rest of the gathering) is that once unconscious, there is no
temptation to go and “fix” anything. The folks are now definitely in charge,
and you don’t have to say a word. It is just a fact.

 

A long time ago, I used to say something about “being around if somebody
needed me,” but then I discovered that nobody was listening except me. And
when I thought further it was very clear that the only reason I said it was
somehow to make me feel better. So – all under the heading of “thinking of
one more thing not to do” I just kept my mouth shut, walked out, and headed
(usually) for the nearest shady tree, couch, or best of all -- bed.

 

Try it. I know you will like it :-)

I'd like to think that Harrison's approach is exactly the same as mine
but the statement without a word is where I part company. I make a
deliberate point of saying I am now going back to my room to take a
nap. I hope to return for the evening news.

Further, I do my best to leave in a conspicuous manner such that if
possible they can view me walking toward my room.

When I question participants at conference end, they tell me that
witnessing” my leaving shocks them into getting to it right away
since it is obvious that I won't be assisting.

As Harrison said, Try it!

Re: Action marketplace and action planning

2006-01-31 Thread Loretta Donovan
Continuing with the suggestions of Robyn and MH . . .  where there is
limited technology or the wait time for building the area on an intranet
would diffuse the momentum, a private blog can be set-up with member
accounts for participants.  A novice can do this and at no cost.

There are many benefits: 

** I've found that capturing the original proceedings with a digital camera
(rather than transcribing them) has a wonderful visual impact and keeps the
ideas alive.  These can be posted to the blog for easy reference.  

** Members of the blog can add new topics, comments and resources across all
of the plans and the areas of great energy and opportunity are motivating to
the whole.  It truly belongs to everyone who has an interest.

** Relevant external sources in the news, from clients, providers of
services or other stakeholders can be added as they are uncovered.

i'll be curious about this, too, michael.  wondering what will be done
with these next step sheets, assuming they are to be returned to some
central place, posted on the wall, included in the report.

as i did a smallish, 60 people, open space these last two days on
region food security, i was contemplating this whole question of
action.  what i think i've concluded for the moment is that inviting
attention is important, and action is ultimately required, but the way
to get action is to support connections.

it's easy enough to identify and even capture and write down a short
list of specific actions in these ways.  i love this way you're going
to do this.  and... more than specific actions, i'm interested in
ongoing action, and so i think this takes ongoing support for
connections.  this is why i'm asking about what will be done with the
actions.

and more, i wonder what will be done with those things i want to do
that don't pop up until two days later.

in this food security summit over the weekend, we created the usual
document, but we also posted all of the proceedings to a weblog at
http://www.foodsummit.org.  we then invited people from the group to
volunteer to be stewards of this.  we invited everyone to go back to
their organizations and get webmasters to link to the new site,
reciprocally.  i will be having a short orientation call with 8
volunteers who will each be keeping eyes and ears open for new
invitations and other news items.  everyone will be invited to join a
mail list, so that they can receive posts by email if that's their
preference.  in this way, the wall can stay open, and whenever
anybody comes up with things i want to do then they'll be able to
post to the ongoing record (through one of the volunteer webmasters)
and alert the rest of the community.   they've chosen dates for
another summit next year and everyone can be inviting people to join
that, by inviting them to check out the website, and join the email
list to receive news that way if they like.

in this way, we're focusing on supporting connections more than
identifying actions.  i'm wondering what others are doing to support
connections after the event, in some ongoing ways that can support
ongoing conversation (and the actions that automatically arise),
especially in diverse community-wide sorts of groups.

  Dear Chris,
  for some time I have been wondering how I ever felt got stuck on the
  notion that there is a linear sequence such as first we talk and then we
  plan in the context of OST gatherings (what sometimes has been described
  as divergence followed by convergence).
  Theory but more so experience in some 200 OST events (and more
  importantly in zillions of everyday life experiences) I have been
  involved in seems to indicate that its not a linear sequence but
  productively chaotic with action and action planning and discussion and
  story telling and whatever else we are engaged in happening
  simultaneously throughout the process.
  Having discussed this with colleagues and clients over the last weeks we
  will try the following in a one day event with  130 participants this
  coming Monday in Berlin (participants from various agencies connected in
  a network with a focus on counselling immigrants searching for a job),
  an event where I would not have suggested or suggest a separate action
  planning:
  Parallel to the design with 4 timeslots and 9 breakout spaces (time and
  space for at least 36 issues)and the usual report sheets posted at the
  newswall a Next Step sheets will be available from the very beginning
  (usually employed in a seperate action planning phase at the end of the
  event).
  The Next Step sheet has the following structure:
  -Vorhaben (which is the german for something that I want to do and a
  broader term then project, close to intention but a bit more towards
  something that actually will be done)
  -people taking part (participants can enter their names)
  -Next Step (who,what,when,where, how)
  -Contact person
  During the introduction to the process I will point out that the Next
  Step sheets are available on a separate section of the newswall, so that
  everyone will be able to see the emerging Next Step sheets with the
  possibility of adding ones name or other Next Steps on the sheet. These
  sheets will simply become part of the Book of Proceedings (high speed
  copying machines making it possible to hand out the Book after the
  closing circle even in a one day event).
 
  Will let you know how this went.

as i did a smallish, 60 people, open space these last two days on region

think i've concluded for the moment is that inviting attention is important,
and action is ultimately required, but the way to get action is to support
connections.

it's easy enough to identify and even capture and write down a short list of
specific actions in these ways.  i love this way you're going to do this.

i think this takes ongoing support for connections.  this is why i'm asking
about what will be done with the actions.

and more, i wonder what will be done with those things i want to do
that don't pop up until two days later.

in this food security summit over the weekend, we created the usual

volunteer to be stewards of this.  we invited everyone to go back to their
organizations and get webmasters to link to the new site, reciprocally.  i
will be having a short orientation call with 8 volunteers who will each be
keeping eyes and ears open for new invitations and other news items.

There's another piece to this, amplifying what Michael and Robyn are saying
about connections.  It's committment and connection and belonging that is
required and then there is something to do with accountability that springs
out of all that.  It's not the kind of accountability that is about sigining
a pledge or being held to a contract.  Rather it is the kind of
accountability to oneself that emerges from spending two days taking
responsibility for what one loves.

I think OST fosters this kind of accountability at a very deep level.  In
fact it may be one of the deeper benefits of the process that rarely gets
talked about, but connecting it to action seems to be a very valuable way of
talking about it.

Right on Robyn -- and in fact what you are describing has been done on a
number of occasions. It works, but not without a little assistance. So long
as the issues are hot and bothersome, the I-Net crackles, but attention
spans on the net are notoriously short (law of two feet aka delete). This
attention need not be formally chartered as some sort of a committee, but
folks will need to take responsibility to ask their colleagues about the
ongoing status of project, results and the like. Simple posting is not a
cure-all. Another assist can come from an iteration of face-to-face Open
Spaces as needed. Virtual Open Space does work (witness this OSLIST) but
opportunities to engage eyeball to eyeball are essential. I guess we have
been having just that discussion here relative to OSONOS, son/daughter of
OSONOS -- and distant cousins.

2006-01-30 Thread Thomas Herrmann
Dear friends
There are so many threads in this thread. Just a few things/experiences I
come to think of.
Action wall:
* When I´ve used an action wall I have also included what´s been posted
there, in the book of proceedings. That this will be the case has been
clearly stated at the outset. And people are invited to join - during the
event and they´ve been invited again in the book of proceedings. For me this
is plainly offering an opportunity - usually I use this procedure when it´s
a short event without real actionplanning. Just in case anyone wants to
take this great chance to find someone crazy about the same idea! Then -
whatever happens with it...

Supporting connections
* List of participants including contact-info, of course.
* On a number of occasions we´ve put up some kind of post-conference-space
where the proceedings are posted, for continuous collaboration. To me it
seems that people (especially when from many different organization) seem
reluctant to join in - of course everything is highly dependent on HOW all
this is done! Most folks today have so many different spaces where they
communicate so one more is just one too much... But of course, if the energy
is hight enough it works.
* I´ve not yet tried a follow up conference using OS-online - but I sure
will!
* I always facilitate a follow up meeting and since last 6 months also
include an evaluation meeting in all of my work with OST. These meetings are
a way to open the space up again - and the results are always communicated
to all who took part in the OS-meeting. With an invitation to join, if
they´re interested. Often these meeting are open to everyone who took part
in the OS-meeting.
* Of course, it´s much easier within organizations - staffmeetings etc.
During the follow up meeting they always work at how to keep the
post-event-space open.

My two öre

  The conference we are doing is two days of talk and networking on Fetal
  Alcohol Syndrome.  A couple of hundred people will be coming together to
  discuss what they are doing and to find others interested in their
  work.  It is a learning conference with no expectation for anything
  concrete, like a strategy opr a statement, but rather the importance is
  on maximizing face time between practitioners.  Something like an
 OSonOS.
 
  Some of the folks on the planning committee though want to support
  action that does flow from the conference and they have asked for the
  container to hold some energy and intention for this without the
  conference becoming about 200 people trying to come up with one action
  plan.  No need for prioritising or even a non-convergence type reopening
  of the space.  I think this is a very real need and a very realistic
  expectation.
 
  So today we started playing with two ideas, one new and one old.  The
  old one is to simply add to the small group summaries form a place for
  people to record next steps.  The new idea is to create an action market
  place next to the news wall.  This is no more complicated than a
  community bulletin board, in that people can feel free to post any bits
  and pieces of action that they want to invite others to join.  The
  advantage of this system is that it allows a finer grain of action to
  come forward, so for example, while there may be some conversations that
  emerge in the event about what to do next, the action market place could
  hold much smaller pieces that would otherwise be lost.  Action around a
  follow up conference would stand alongside an invitation to join one or
  two people in writing a new brochure, or meeting for coffee next week to
  continue a conversation.
 
  I think this approach could work in all OST gatherings, and might even
  be especially useful in gatherings where action planning is a part of
  the process.  Then you end up with action planning taking the group in
  one large general direction, but the individual passion and
  responsibility for little things also in play.

Dear Chris
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I´ve used a similair approach on occasions
lately. But I´ve used flipcharts with headers (Issue I will move forward.
Name. Who will join?) actually learnt this from Birgitt years ago but didn´t
use it so much until recently. Lately I put these flipcharts up at the start
so whenever an action item appears is the right time and action-space is
ready. Your email sparked an idea that I may try soon. First to make it more
like a market place and to put a small table at the action market place with
papers and different coloured pens and maybe prepare the space in some more
creative way to look really inviting.

Anyway it´s time to sleep, tomorrow I will go skiing in the morning - we
have great winter days with lots of snow over here in west Sweden which is
not that usual.
But Frölunda Indians are a disaster right now, although still in second
place;-) (hockey talk)

I'd share with you folks...

  The conference we are doing is two days of talk and networking on Fetal
Alcohol Syndrome.  A couple of hundred people will be coming together to
discuss what they are doing and to find others interested in their work.  It
is a learning conference with no expectation for anything concrete, like a
strategy opr a statement, but rather the importance is on maximizing face
time between practitioners.  Something like an OSonOS.

  Some of the folks on the planning committee though want to support action
that does flow from the conference and they have asked for the container to
hold some energy and intention for this without the conference becoming
about 200 people trying to come up with one action plan.  No need for
prioritising or even a non-convergence type reopening of the space.  I think
this is a very real need and a very realistic expectation.

  So today we started playing with two ideas, one new and one old.  The old
one is to simply add to the small group summaries form a place for people to
record next steps.  The new idea is to create an action market place next to
the news wall.  This is no more complicated than a community bulletin board,
in that people can feel free to post any bits and pieces of action that they
want to invite others to join.  The advantage of this system is that it
allows a finer grain of action to come forward, so for example, while there
may be some conversations that emerge in the event about what to do next,
the action market place could hold much smaller pieces that would otherwise
be lost.  Action around a follow up conference would stand alongside an
invitation to join one or two people in writing a new brochure, or meeting
for coffee next week to continue a conversation.

  I think this approach could work in all OST gatherings, and might even be
especially useful in gatherings where action planning is a part of the
process.  Then you end up with action planning taking the group in one large
general direction, but the individual passion and responsibility for little
things also in play.

  Cheers,

  Chris

  Dear Chris
  Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I´ve used a similair approach on occasions 
lately. But I´ve used flipcharts with headers (Issue I will move forward. Name. 
Who will join?) actually learnt this from Birgitt years ago but didn´t use it 
so much until recently. Lately I put these flipcharts up at the start so 
whenever an action item appears is the right time and action-space is ready. 
Your email sparked an idea that I may try soon. First to make it more like a 
market place and to put a small table at the action market place with papers 
and different coloured pens and maybe prepare the space in some more creative 
way to look really inviting.

  Anyway it´s time to sleep, tomorrow I will go skiing in the morning - we have 
great winter days with lots of snow over here in west Sweden which is not that 
usual.
  But Frölunda Indians are a disaster right now, although still in second 
place;-) (hockey talk)
  Warmest regards
  Thomas

Actually, your name is so distinctive, it recalled to mind the poem by Robert

  Dear Chris
  Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I´ve used a similair approach on occasions 
lately. But I´ve used flipcharts with headers (Issue I will move forward. Name. 
Who will join?) actually learnt this from Birgitt years ago but didn´t use it 
so much until recently. Lately I put these flipcharts up at the start so 
whenever an action item appears is the right time and action-space is ready. 
Your email sparked an idea that I may try soon. First to make it more like a 
market place and to put a small table at the action market place with papers 
and different coloured pens and maybe prepare the space in some more creative 
way to look really inviting.

  Anyway it´s time to sleep, tomorrow I will go skiing in the morning - we have 
great winter days with lots of snow over here in west Sweden which is not that 
usual.
  But Frölunda Indians are a disaster right now, although still in second 
place;-) (hockey talk)
  Warmest regards
  Thomas

Ämne: Action marketplace


In my continuing quest to find ways to support action coming out of OST 
events, I put together a little thought for a client today which I thought I'd 
share with you folks...

The conference we are doing is two days of talk and networking on Fetal 
Alcohol Syndrome.  A couple of hundred people will be coming together to 
discuss what they are doing and to find others interested in their work.  It is 
a learning conference with no expectation for anything concrete, like a 
strategy opr a statement, but rather the importance is on maximizing face time 
between practitioners.  Something like an OSonOS.

Some of the folks on the planning committee though want to support action 
that does flow from the conference and they have asked for the container to 
hold some energy and intention for this without the conference becoming about 
200 people trying to come up with one action plan.  No need for prioritising or 
even a non-convergence type reopening of the space.  I think this is a very 
real need and a very realistic expectation.

So today we started playing with two ideas, one new and one old.  The old 
one is to simply add to the small group summaries form a place for people to 
record next steps.  The new idea is to create an action market place next to 
the news wall.  This is no more complicated than a community bulletin board, in 
that people can feel free to post any bits and pieces of action that they want 
to invite others to join.  The advantage of this system is that it allows a 
finer grain of action to come forward, so for example, while there may be some 
conversations that emerge in the event about what to do next, the action market 
place could hold much smaller pieces that would otherwise be lost.  Action 
around a follow up conference would stand alongside an invitation to join one 
or two people in writing a new brochure, or meeting for coffee next week to 
continue a conversation.  

I think this approach could work in all OST gatherings, and might even be 
especially useful in gatherings where action planning is a part of the process. 
 Then you end up with action planning taking the group in one large general 
direction, but the individual passion and responsibility for little things also 
in play.

Cheers,

Chris

2006-01-25 Thread Joelle Lyons Everett
Chris, Thomas--

I really like the idea of providing for an easy, low-key (non-intimidating) 
way to invite and record the smaller action steps like a further conversation 
or producing a document, as well as the major initiatives that come out of an 
OS event.   These small actions can keep the conversation alive and growing.

Thanks!

Joelle

I'd like to donate to the silent auction a small bit of OSonOS history--two 
Dead Moose Society T-shirts created by Diane Brown for an earlier OSonOS (maybe 
in Toronto??).

Looking forward to seeing you in Halifax!

Access Queen, the Global Village Marketplace, and the Silent Auction

2005-07-09 Thread Lisa Heft
Okay but before I go, I wanted to share this last message with you:
 
At the Open Space on Open Space in Halifax next month, we will have 3
kids of resource-sharing activities.  So if you are coming to the OSonOS
or know someone who is, you may want to know about the following -
 
* Global Village Marketplace is where we set up some tables and
sell to each other folk crafts from our various countries, books about
Open Space, things we or our neighbors or friends have made -- poetry,
jewelry, knitted items, scarves, shawls, ornamental eggs - whatever each
of you/us feels inspired to pack into our suitcases and bring along.
You can sell your items to raise money for yourself, or for your
community organization back home, or you can donate that money to the
Access Queen Fund *.   
 
* Silent Auction is where we have tables with items on them with
little cards next to them - you write your name on a card plus an amount
you are willing to pay for an item you wish to purchase.  Towards the
end of the OSonOS whoever has bid the highest amount gets the fabulous
item, and the money raised goes to the Access Queen Fund.  So you may
wish to pack along or send with someone some very great piece of folk
art, fabric, food from your country, offer of services, book or whatever
to contribute to the auction.  Want to buy a CD of music featuring our
own Chris Corrigan?  That, a Turtles t-shirt from Therese, services from
Raffi and other fabulous items will be available for your auction bids
at the Silent Auction table.
 
* Additionally, Be Prepared to Be Surprised: Random Acts of
Generosity and playfulness happen at an OSonOS, all in the support of
the Access Queen Fund.  You have already heard of the possibility of
little massages (thanks, Marei!), and who knows what else may pop up?
In past years OSonOS participants have announced dance lessons, hikes,
massages, music making - all as little ways to raise funds for the
Access Queen Fun.  Maybe you, too have something to teach and share with
us while at the same time supporting the Fund and our askers and
ourselves with your generosity, expertise and playfulness.
 
So: have fun thinking of what you might bring along or send with
someone, and thank you all for your warm support of Access Queen and her
little project of sharing resources, energy, belief and mutual support,
 
Lisa
 
* Anything raised this year for the AQ Fund that is not spent to assist
current Askers remains in the Fund for assisting next year's Askers.

Re: Access Queen Invites You to Join our International Silent Auction and Global Village Marketplace at OSonOS

2003-08-20 Thread Chris Corrigan
Hi Lisa:

I'm willing to donate a copy of a CD of traditional Irish music I made a
couple of years ago with a bunch of friends, called In the Heather.
Info is at http://www.chriscorrigan.com/music/index.html.  If people
want to hear a track or two have them email me and I'll send along a
sample.  Those of you who were at OSonOS IX in Vancouver may remember
some of these musicians from the opening night reception we held.

It's obviously too late to send a copy along to Svenmark for OSonOS, but
if you print out the notes from that webpage, perhaps it'll garner some
interest. Let me know who makes the winning bid and I'll spirit a copy
of the CD to them.

Perhaps other OST facilitators/musicians on the list could throw in a CD
or two of their work, and someone could bid on the entire OSLIST
catalogue of recordings by facilitators.

Good luck with the auction...and best wishes to all traveling to
Europe's northern climes this week.

Chris

Re: Access Queen Invites You to Join our International Silent Auction and Global Village Marketplace at OSonOS

2003-08-19 Thread Michelle Cooper
Dearest Lisa;
Thank you for your passion and responsibility and leadership as the Access
Queen
I have had considerable experience with Silent auction for the Long Term
Care Facility foundation in my community and will offer my experience. I was
chair of the annual Gala and silent auction held April 4, 2003...yes the day
of the worst ice storm of the winter...and we made over $50,000 on the event
in spite of the weather. 350 of 425 people showed up by taxi, snowmobile or
other ingenious means when even the malls had been closed down...and the
theme, murder on the orient express...of course, the murder happened as the
train was stalled in a snowstorm.. very excellent manifesting on our part.

So we need paper, pencils items to auction and a closing time for the event.
We need a registration system to assign people numbers and then they bid and
of course people to bring money!!!

I will think of what I can bring. I am amazed...just like at a garage
sale...one person's junk is another person's treasure.

Looking forward to seeing many of you there.
Michelle

Access Queen says: Bring/send your wares to the Global Village Marketplace!

2002-10-14 Thread Lisa Heft
Hello, dear colleagues - AQ here.

So at last year's OSonOS in Vancouver we started this idea I learned
from my participation in the International AIDS Conferences - and that
is the creation of a village marketplace where NGOs bring their arts and
crafts to sell to each other to raise funds.  It is truly a marvelous
experience to see what your brothers and sisters around the world have
made and to support them in their work.

So we created three or four tables last year full of poetry from
Florian, knitted Turkish-style slippers from Nuran, earrings and
hand-made cards and Russian shawls and other amazing and marvelous
things.  And everybody bought what they could to support each other, and
many of us 'went home' with each other in the forms of things we made
(hmmm made some things that are sitting on Jimbo's mantle, nestling in
Florian's home, smiling up at Nuran.it's like I get to visit, in a small
way, with all those people around the world.)

This year you are invited to bring artisan work / folk art (poetry,
jewelry, shawls, teacups, whatever you think represents your country
and/or your own art) to the OSonOS in Melbourne if you are coming, or to
send it along with someone in your region who is coming.

You (or your delegates to Melbourne) can sell it to recoup some of your
travel expenses or you can raise the money for next year's Access Queen
fund to help some lucky and brave future 'askers' for the next OSonOS.

I look forward to seeing the creative works of my wonderful, inspired
colleagues.

Whoops!  I've got to get back to my own crafts projects now.
