A World Café is a structured conversational process for knowledge sharing in which groups of people discuss a topic at several tables, with individuals switching tables periodically and getting introduced to the previous discussion at their new table by a “table host. An underlying assumption of World Café events is that collective discussion can shift people’s perceptions and encourage collective action.
OST is highly scalable and adaptable and has been used in meetings of between 5 and 2,000 people. It is effective in situations where people must deal with complex and potentially conflicting information. It is particularly powerful when nobody knows the answer. We describe it as meeting with no pre-conceived agendas. It is simple and easy to get started but needs careful preparation. It is about letting the participants design the agenda, capturing what they want to talk about and not what ‘others’ think they want to hear.
