All over the world Organisations are experimenting with new tools and methods for increasing effectiveness and organisational agility. One pattern we see emerging in this new paradigm is self-organised, semi-autonomous teams, energized by a personal sense of calling to serve effectively their collective purpose. At the same time it’s becoming clear that each organisation’s context is unique and that prescriptive, “one size fits all” solutions can cause more harm than good.
Sociocracy 3.0 (also known as S3), a free and open, principles based framework of patterns, supports all aspects of collaboration and gracefully embraces this emerging paradigm. It integrates lean and agile thinking, meets organisations where they are and provides a variety of compatible options to choose from and adapt, according to unique context and needs.
This half-day session will give you a big picture overview of S3, along with the opportunity to experience some of the patterns in practice.
You will discover methods to navigate complexity and maximise value delivery for all – participants, customers and the company.
s3 – a social technology for our time
Classic sociocracy also known as dynamic governance in the U.S. offers an innovative approach to positively grow and continuously improve organisations.
S3 is an evolutionary, principles based framework of patterns that people wishing to collaborate and learn together effectively can practice to improve flow of value and grow happy, successful organisations.
S3 builds on sociocratic practices, integrating influences from Holacracy, Agile, Lean and Non-Violent Communication.
Alongside a reliable and effective framework that effectively taps into the collective intelligence within teams, S3 facilitates co-creativity, fosters transparency and guarantees the equivalence of all participants in decision making.
Short governance iterations with a tight feedback loop (Decide – Do – Review) make self-organisation and dynamic steering achievable both for teams and for the whole organisation.
