Wednesday was a great day. A fine cross-section of the Stan community gathered, under the quiet guidance of Nick S., to use Open Space Technology to address the question: Stan’s Cafe: How Do We Build On Our Success?
The Open Space technique is an extraordinarily simple and effective way to address, to address, well to address whatever anyone thinks needs addressing. In this case things like What’s Stan’s Cafe For? Why do education work? Should the Office have a carpet?
It was brilliant seeing everyone get stuck into moving the company on to the next stage. The atmosphere was very focused and positive. We’re only just starting to pick over the notes, but already it’s clear that a host of inspiring ideas were thrown up. Now we have to make sure we turn those words into action.
