Introduction

Like Open Space itself, this document was discovered, not designed. Its 37 unwitting authors are a small slice of the hundreds whose email writing and community learning fills the OSLI ST online archive, which itself holds but half of more than 10 years of dialogue. Which is to say that this is only the tiniest excerpt of what has been going on, around the world, online and elsewhere, for a very long time.  

The discovery and publication of this rich little taste is offered here in support of the worldwide conversation and practitioner community that is Open Space Technology. Paired with Harrison Owen' s Open Space Technology, A User's Guide, it seems to form a simple, powerful springboard for trainings, workshops and practice groups. Unlike the Guide, however, this Non-Guide doesn't tell you how to 'do' it. What you'll find here are clues and support for the non-doing.  

In this way, this Non-Guide is an invitation to go deeper... to invite, to experiment, to reflect and to invite again, deeper and deeper, organizing for yourself (ves) as you go. As you'll see, it's all about the self-organizing spirit that is manifesting everywhere in organizations that work, in open space.  

And, yes, it' s j us t a conversation... but how does it stir you?  

As a community, we describe Open Space Technology (OST) in many ways: the energy of a good coffee break, the art of finding one more thing to NOT do, aninvitation to maximize learning and contribution, and a simple, powerful way to raise spirit and catalyze self-organization. For more about OST, see Appendix A, but for now, suffice it to say that our online practitioner conversations have been all about all of this, and more.  

OST practitioners have been learning together in online conversation since at least 1991. The OSLIST email listserve, as currently configured, has been around since 1996. At the time of these conversations, there were more than 300 people participating in that conversation, on at least six continents. We have included, as an appendix, our FAQ (frequently asked questions) document, which is updated and mailed to the list every couple of months. It presents the 'state of the list' at the time these conversations took place in late 2001, early 2002. It will give a bit more  


specific background on OST, the OSLIST and other online resources. It's also a seed document, of sorts, as other OS listserve communities are being born in local regions and in languages like Spanish, Russian and Haitian Creole.  

The material in this particular document was collected from roughly two months of online conversations, after several of us noticed that perhaps a dozen or more threads all seemed to fit together. As we said, discovered not constructed. And in bringing this material forward for you, we have done virtually no editing, beyond the (relatively) simple, careful splicing together of many threads and branches into a single stream. Taken together, it seems to cover much of what we would want to see included in a training or workshop conversation for advanced practitioners.  

Our hunch is that the combination of Harrison Owen's User' s Guide and this community-generated Non-Guide gives new practitioner groups everything they need to begin their exploration of the deep spirit and technical practices that are Open Space Technology. We think these conversations about spirit and self-organization do much to support the spirit that is self-organization, everywhere. Maybe they will, maybe they won't -- but this our hope and our experiment.  

Like Open Space itself, this material is offered free of charge, for your use and creativity, with one simple request... that you come back to share the stories of how you're using it and what you're learning. Visit http://www.openspaceworld.org and click "OSLIST" to join the worldwide, online, open space conversation or simply email any one of the authors directly.  

And, yes, it's all just conversation... until it stirs us into action. So many thanks to Harrison and the rest of our colleagues on the OSLI ST, for all the good conversing and all the good action that is coming of it around the world.  

Pour the tea, settle back in your chair, and let's go...
