To be consistent with their own advice, Bembo Davies and Katalin Hausel decided to run a follow-up to our "Follow-up is Everything" session.  While "Follow-up" is focusing on findings while working on The Book of Greater and Lesser Omissions (B-GLO), "unExpansion" is a workshop to tweak concrete plans for the (very) near future of the unMonastery.  While still digesting the triumphs and tribulations of the prototype, we have received several offers from various backgrounds to open unMonasteries. Is it advisable to spread fast? How many unMonasteries would it be ideal or advisable to open in 2015? 
The combination of time frame, recruiting strategies, project descriptions and stakeholder expectations for unMon Matera proved to be treacherously constrictive and led to stress levels and to burn-out that we had hoped to leave behind . Under what conditions can we avoid these happening? What kind of time framework shall we focus on? What kind of conditions shall we set as minimum requirements from the host community? In light of the unMonastery Matera prototype what kind of tangible results can we realistically offer? Do we need a "Manual for unMonastery Stakeholders" before we start negotiations? 

We would like participants to get familiar with the Book of Greater and Lesser Omissions, and attend  the “Follow-up is everything” session. 

This workshop should consist of 2x60 minutes sessions, one right after "Follow up is everything", and the second one is a day or so later. 

Date: 2014-10-24 10:30:00 - 2014-10-24 10:30:00, Europe/Brussels Time.

I’m in

This session should follow up nicely also the two days of working out Sustainability numbers for the unMon during the hackathon. Even if the decision and strategy for the unMon future will not be based on numbers per se, it will help greatly i think if you’ll have a smart tool to show to potential funders and manage expectations across stakeholders…
