Summary Helpathon Protocol

At least 8 people and 24 hours. A helpathon should preferably take place for a minimum of 24 consecutive hours. Spending a night over it helps to process what you have thought up and what you have observed. A night's sleep also provides room for new insights or ideas. A helpathon takes place with at least eight people. That guarantees the dynamics.

A helpathon starts with a good, clear and urgent question. It is important to formulate the right question in the right invitation in advance. To develop the framework within which the helpathon takes place. During a TPI helpathon, the research question is disconnected from the research method. A good research question is valuable in itself, just as a good research method is. Disconnecting these two issues creates more room for new research questions and research methods. 

A Helpathon starts with a synchronization phase lasting at least half a day. This fase is based on Open Space Technology and therefore has no predetermined agenda. Everything that participants find really important in relation to the central question - the theme of the helpathon - is covered. 

A Helpathon is a maker space. The making starts with an "imagination in power" session, in which solutions are described as if they already exist. This phase is interrupted with a night's sleep. That is a natural way to filter ideas and reset information. The next day the ideas that last are tried out further. 

Creative communication. The Helpathon ends with a festive presentation of the results to those involved or interested people from the participants' network. “
