Miriam promotes and teaches the OpenSpace Agility engagement model (OSA), with which leaders create space and guardrails for employees to engage and arrive at their own solutions. This is precisely how profound and sustainable change occurs. Open Space Agility offers a structured approach to change that paves the way to a truly agile organization through freedom and transparency.
