Summary: Marvin Weisbord's (1992) Future Search Conference model is an innovative organizational planning method recently employed by the College of Nursing at Florida Atlantic University in the preliminary stages of the Global Environmental Project for Healing and Health. The purpose of this grounded theory study was to identify the basic social process (BSP) of a particular social world: the future search conference. A purposive sample of six participants volunteered to describe their perspective on what happened and what was going on at the conference entitled, Discovering Common Ground: The Future of Health, Healing and Environment, February 23-25, 1995. Glaser and Strauss' (1967) constant comparative method of data analysis was used to identify the BSP, Finding Common Ground. This enabled conference participants to cope with the unique conditions of a future search conference (sequestration, diverse population, and self-management) while accomplishing the goals of the conference.
