Polarities to help design harvesting

Chris Corrigan

Some recent harvests

Chris Corrigan

So a little time to breathe and reflect on a couple of harvests. Second, a harvest poem from the Open Space I ran yesterday in Kelowna. With Open Space these days I am trying as much as possible to have a place in which a meta harvest can be collected and created. Most often this looks like a graphic recorder who gathers materials and snippets from the sessions and co-creates a harvest with session conveners and participants.

Strategic planning using the World Cafe and Open Space

Chris Corrigan

Harvested main themes in group. Developed the values for the non-profit from this harvest. Years ago I developed a process for doing something similar in Open Space. the challenge was how to hold an open planning conversation on the future of the organization, but address key areas without being controlling. Our process ran like this: Prepare a harvest wall with five blank spots for reporting, each with one of the five topic headings.

The curse of predetermining outcomes
