Knowledge Café Master Class

The Knowledge Café consists of a simple but flexible group conversational process that almost anyone can host. Most frequently it is used to gather a group of people together to have a conversation to better understand a topic of mutual interest but can be adapted for a variety of other purposes. These include the surfacing of the group’s collective knowledge; learning from each other; sharing ideas and insights; gaining a deeper understanding of a topic and the issues involved and exploring possibilities. The outcomes are what people take away in their heads and the relationships that are developed.

On 18 June 2015, Skat Foundation invited people interested in this tool to participate in a Master Class. The event was facilitated by David Gurteen, a UK-based international consultant who helped developing and popularizing the tool over the past 12 years. 25 people from diverse professional and institutional backgrounds participated in this full-day event. Based on first-hand experience with this tool, they were able to learn about its potential, to know how to design and run it and to adapt the tool for different purposes.
