Workshop: Sociocracy 3.0 (S3) – Growing Organisational Agility, Navigating Complexity

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) is a free and open, principles based
framework of patterns for people wishing to collaborate more effectively and
grow happy, humane organisations.
It builds on sociocratic practices, integrating principles from Agile / Lean and
Non-Violent Communication and provides a rich variety of compatible options to
choose from and adapt, according to unique context and needs.
S3 addresses the generic complexities arising when collaboration needs to scale
across multiple teams and domains and acts as a “social technology” for
unlocking ownership, engagement and a sense of purpose while promoting
respect, diversity and inclusion.
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.
