Thank you for your interest in the OpenSpace Beta Certification workshop. Unfortunately, not enough people responded to our invitation, which is why we have to inform you that the planned workshop with Niels Pflaeging will NOT take place in Copenhagen. However, if you are still interested in joining an OpenSpace Beta Certification, then we recommend you the same workshop in June in Wiesbaden, Germany. Find the details for this workshop:



OpenSpace Beta Certification workshop

  • Do you want your organization to be agile and self-organizing? / Do you help organizations with agility and self-organization transformation?
  • Do you want to invite a whole large organization to co-create change at scale, instead of imposing change?
  • Do you want to engage people by offering options, as well as a sense of control and a feeling of belonging, which are sources of basic human happiness?
  • Do you want to transform your organization in just 90 days, without an army of consultants?
