Conventional structures used to organize how people routinely work together stifle inclusion and engagement. Conventional structures are either too inhibiting or too loose and disorganized to creatively engage people in shaping their own future. They frequently generate feelings of frustration and/or exclusion and fail to provide space for good ideas to emerge and germinate. This means that huge amounts of time and money are spent working the wrong way. More time and money are then spent trying to fix the unintended consequences. Liberating Structures offers an alternative way to approach and design how people work together. It provides a menu of thirty-three tools to replace or complement conventional practices. Liberating Structures used routinely make it possible to build the kind of organization that everybody wants. They are designed to include everyone in shaping next steps.
