The Conversation with Michael Herman and Mark Kilby

12:10mins A virtual Openspace on Openspace: http://openspaceworld.org/wp2/osonos/

How Mike and Michael's Co-Facilitation Partnership came about. Agile meets OpenSpace

Creating an event to encourage deep conversation, not creating best practice presentations.

We're working more and more in a distributed way: What does this mean for the world of work.

OpenSpace is if nothing else responsing to change and customer collaboration in creating the agenda about what's going to happen.

You can listen to people's experiences of the audacious salon here:

Practicing the Back and Forth.

Some people who were there in person on day 1 wanted to join in remotely over day 2.

How much preparation do you need to run an open-space event? Intentional choices about technology, shifting expectations around technology.

A bit of a summary of Open Space Technology.

What happens if nothing happens?
Are agile and openspace the same thing?

Sometimes we only need to point out to people what they could do.
