What is the Open Space technology?

Open Space is a kind of unconference, a simple way to run productive meetings for 5 to 2000 or more people, and a powerful way to lead any kind of organization in everyday practice and extraordinary change.

Why are we doing Open Space?

We’re doing Open Space at QCon because we want this conference to be yours. At QCon, we learn from the best and share with the best. We come with passions and ideas that we want to share with each other. We want to connect with each other, create community around topics that we’re passionate about. We do that with Open Space.

How does Open Space work?

The Law of Two Feet means you take responsibility for what you care about -- standing up for that and using your own two feet to move to whatever place you can best contribute and/or learn.

Four principles apply to how you navigate in open space:

  • Whoever comes is the right people
    Whoever is attracted to the same conversation are the people who can contribute most to that conversation—because they care. So they are exactly the ones—for the whole group-- who are capable of initiating action.
  • Whatever happens is the only thing that could've
    We are all limited by our own pasts and expectations.  This principle acknowledges we'll all do our best to focus on NOW-- the present time and place-- and not get bogged down in what could've or should've happened.
  • When it starts is the right time
    The creative spirit has its own time, and our task is to make our best contribution and enter the flow of creativity when it starts.
  • When it's over, it's over
    Creativity has its own rhythm. So do groups.

What’s next?

Bring your passion and ideas to QCon Plus Open Space! See you there!
