Background & Purpose

Sometimes working with friends on a freelance basis is just not enough but you don’t want to set up a formal company with a structure and full-time employment. At Open Space we decided to work in the form of a collective that brings diverse people together. We are still freelancers but there is a theme that unites us (in our case it is the participatory methods and sustainability in Bulgaria). It allows us to run projects independently, and also join forces for common bigger projects. We have a formal company to deal with admin and finances.

Invite people to a fun event

Background & Purpose

When I want to recruit people, and be sure they’re really interested in the project. I invite people to exactly the thing that I want to recruit them for. I invite them to share their ideas on the project (or whatever it is that I want to invite them to). I see how many people respond, and then I hold a brainstorming session, or any other kind of fun event around the topic that I am interested in. People who truely burn for the issue will stay. That way I know I am working with people who want to contribute.

Jour Fixe

Time frame:
Ongoing usage

Complexity: 2/5
More info: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jour_fixe

Background & Purpose

Due to the trend of digital nomadism, we sometimes lack face-to face time with each other. A Jour Fixe can be the simple agreement to work together at an agreed time and with agreed frequency. Teamwork will be fostered when all team members try to be present at the same time, for example for half a day a week. Meeting times can be reduced and work can become more efficient by applying this practice.

Background & Purpose

Specially for organisations where raising capital investment is not a suitable way to evolve, being able to grow as a team is key for success. For this purpose we decided to find a way to lower the entrance barrier, a sort of ‘no email required log in’ for joining the collective.
