RSVP cycles is a system of creative methodology for collaboration. It was developed by Anna Halprin, her husband Lawrence Halprin and the latter's fellow architect Jim Burns. Halprin presented it in a 1969 book The RSVP Cycles: Creative Processes in the Human Environment (Halprin 1970)[page needed]
The name is an initialism referring to its four components:
- Anything that can be used in the process, including time, physical materials, other people, ideas, limitations etc.
- Instructions for the work. This can be identified along a gradient scale of being an Open or a Closed score.
- A process of dynamically responding to the work based on values.
- Setting the work in motion.
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.
