World Cafe

What facilitated processes can enable large groups to engage in meaningful conversations? David Isaacs, Alexander Schieffer and Bo Gyllenpalm describe one such approach, The World Cafe. The authors of this paper condense their years of experience as facilitators of The World Cafe into an easily envisioned set of enabling conditions and key principles. The paper also appeared in the World Business Academy publication, Transformation (Volume 18; Issue 8, July 2004).
