Peer Discussion: Accelerated Open Space

Presented by: Steve Bell & Karen Whitley Bell

Steve Bell and Karen Whitley Bell will facilitate an accelerated Open Space session—a highly interactive format where participants identify the most vital issues they face, then self-select into smaller groups for inquiry, reflection, and shared learning among peers, on the topics of their choice. After small group discussion, participants come back together to share each group’s highlights and insights, creating leveraged learning among all participants.
This session reflects the mission of the CIO Association of Canada, to bring technology leaders together with their peers, for shared learning and development. This experience will also help participants gain an understanding of the power of the Open Space approach—learning by doing— so they can experiment with Open Space sessions in their own workplace to inspire collaboration, creativity and innovation.
