Professional Services Day

We had an excellent professional services day today. Rather than the previous format of set talks and dry presentations the organiser used the Open Spaces pattern. He drew up a grid with time slots and rooms then invited the attendees to write a single topic suggestion on a card and out it in a slot. When everybody who wanted to put a card in then he invited a second and then a third round.
The result was a suprisingly large number of different sessions. I was able to make it through the day without having to sit through anything dull or non-applicable. The large number of sessions meant that the groups were small and everybody got to interact. Good stuff!
