These are the Ground Rules for the OpenSpace Agility LinkedIn group. They appear here because LinkedIn limits the number of characters in a post, and we are not willing to be subjected to that limitation. So the Ground Rules are here.

Please read carefully before joining the LinkedIn group:

READ THIS FIRST: This group is *highly* focused on 1 and only 1 topic:

This one ===> OpenSpace Agility

    • The OpenSpace Agility group on LinkedIn is a community of practice devoted to rapid and lasting Agile adoptions using the principles of Invitation-Based Change™ (“IBC”) and the practices of OpenSpace Agility and Prime/OS, as described at:
    • This group is the place to post questions, provide answers, post experience reports, tell stories, and have discussions about using Open Space inside Agile adoptions.  This is the place to have fun learning with others about Open Space and OSA, in service to rapid and lasting Agile adoptions worldwide.


    • Regarding what’s “Normal”: You agree that everyone here is subject to the following code of conduct; by joining this group you agree to be held to this standard:
    • Regarding Your Membership Status: You agree that everyone who continues to be a member here (or not) is at the sole discretion of the Admin and/or Moderators.
    • Regarding Noise: You agree to help us keep the signal-to-noise ratio at a high level, by keeping it on-topic.
      • You agree to help the whole group by posting useful, on-topic questions, on-topic answers, and useful information.
      • You agree that those who post off-topic noise to this group more than once will be banned after their post is deleted.
    • Regarding Promotions: You agree that spam, the marketing of products, services and events, and off-topic self-promotion is STRICTLY Prohibited.
      • You agree that solicitations focused on OSA are welcome, to the extent the offer supports the aims of the group. So for example, posting about courses related to OSA are welcome here, while posts about garden-variety Agile courses or other off-topic solicitations are not at all appropriate here.

If you think your solicitation is borderline, contact a Moderator or Admin to get authorization first. If you post a promotion of your “off-topic blog post” or your “plain-vanilla Agile workshop,” expect it to be deleted without notice.

SUMMARY: These Ground rules are very minimal by design, so use your judgement when posting, and have fun. These rules are subject to change from time to time.
