100 Open Space Timetables

Here’s a gallery of Open Space programmes. Each timetable is different. I’ve linked to them as I’d need to get permission to put each on here directly. I think there’s a lot to be learned from this gallery. There aren’t really a hundred but I’ll add more regularly and do please add your own links at the bottom!

Some of these links may go out of date, but I hope you find this gallery of emergence useful for comparison and learning…


The Gallery

I love the feel of energy and passion from this one, and the placing of the “theme”…

Here’s a fairly standard “post-it” timetable. I like the scrawly handwriting that gives it an emergent feel…

A very small open space, using vegetables for room names, which reminds me of the wonderful use of animals for spaces at WOSonOS2012:

Another gorgeously homemade feel timetable and the pegs on a washing line allow for easy removal and replacement of sessions, as well as timetable jigging…

Another home-made feel one that has voided using post-its that can feel a bit “corporate”…
