​​Your New Paradigm Solution
Welcome to Your New Paradigm Solution! 
We specialize in highly collaborative and inclusive gatherings applicable to any combination of cultures and industries across the globe. 
These meetings focus on the cross-polination of ideas in order to surface innovative solutions across all levels of your organization.

By 2030, many organizations will be investing in learning how to flatten certain levels of heirarchy, even if temporarily, to gain access to a powerful resource hidden at the grassroots level of conversations and idea flow.
Organizations will soon be extending themselves to cultivate and glean the fruits of a valuable resource called: 
Collective/Group Wisdom.

Your New Paradigm Solution builds the conditions conducive to experiencing the power of collective wisdom and healthy dialogue.
This is about hosting conversations that matter and facilitating them into action.
After all, organizations are networks of conversations.

Open Space Technology (OST) is an approach to self-organizing and purpose-driven leadership. It is a style of hosting for meetings, conflict minded peacebuilding, conferences, corporate-style retreats, symposiums, and community summit events, focused on a specific and important purpose.

"OST is the only process that focuses on expanding time and space for the force of self-organisation to do its thing. Although one can't predict specific outcomes, it's always highly productive for whatever issue people want to attend to. Some of the inspiring side effects that are regularly noted are laughter, hard work which feels like play, surprising results and fascinating new questions."
— Michael M. Pannwitz, Open Space practitioner


Self- Organizing  is characterized by a few basic mechanisms:

  1. A broad, open invitation which articulates the purpose of the meeting

  2. Participants' chairs arranged strategically

  3. A "bulletin board" of issues and opportunities posted by participants

  4. A "marketplace" with many break-out spaces that participants move freely between, learning and contributing as they "shop" for information and ideas

  5. A "breathing" or "pulsation" pattern of flow, between plenary and small-group breakout sessions

Outcomes

Since the agenda of an Open Space meeting is emergent, it is impossible to know exactly what is going to be addressed during the meeting. That said, there are several important outcomes that always happen, because they are specifically built into the process:

  1. All of the issues that are most important to those attending will be raised and included in the agenda

  2. All of the issues raised will be addressed by the participants best capable of getting something done about them

  3. All of the most important ideas, recommendations, discussions, and next steps will be documented in a report

  4. When the purpose requires and time is alloted: 
    1. the group can prioritize the issues addressed in the report
    2. the group can draft action plans for the highest priority issues.

Good  documentation is vital for ideas, recommendations, discussions, and next steps, which is part of the pre-work to make a good design.
