What

Sociocracy is a whole systems approach for organizational design and collaborative decision-making.

A sociocratic organization is governed collaboratively by its members - the 'socios', meaning associates, colleagues, companions - people working together towards a common aim.

Why

Sociocracy is an organizational approach  that

  • Kindles creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit
  • Maximizes effectiveness
  • Reduces tensions around power
  • Streamlines decision-making
  • Increases individual and collective engagement, commitment and empowerment

How

Sociocracy can be used in any organization where people are trying to accomplish something - together!

Collaborative decision-making produces more effective decisions and greater commitment to implementation.

Feedback built into the organizational structure provides both stability and agility.
