Face to Face or Online?

Steve Pashley has a great post Engaging with Local Communities about using Open Space Technology, including Open Space Online. He notes that the NHS (Britain’s National Health Service?) has used face to face OST meetings “engage with stakeholders” in a one-off way without democratizing the organization. He proposes the online version as a possible on-going tool to push change further.


Yes, National Health Service, although nowadays, with the advent of political devolution, the English experience of the NHS is increasingly different than the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish versions.

You’re very welcome, Steve. Was I right that NHS is Britain’s National Health Service? I couldn’t find out for sure on your site.

Ted, thanks for the mention.
