Title: The RSVP Cycles: Creative Processes in the Human Environment
Author: Lawrence Halprin
Publisher: George Braziller, Inc., New York, 1969
RSVP cycles is a system of creative methodology for collaboration. It was developed by Lawrence Halprin and this book published in 1969 presents this ground-breaking system in detail.
The name is an initialism referring to its four components:
Within each stage there is a micro-cycle, which includes all the other elements (e.g. scoring the resources, resourcing the performance, performing the score etc.). There is no set order in which stages should be completed, and one can jump from any element to any other element as long as there is consensus.
According to Halprin, "By chance, when I finally put the headings together, they spelled RSVP, which is a communications idea meaning "respond".
