Title: Organizing ourselves to get things done! - An introduction to working sociocratically.
Organizations are looking for more inclusive, collaborative
ways to make decisions, organize and structure their work, and to
become self-managing self-leading entities. Citizen, advocacy and grassroots groups need increasing adaptability, effectiveness, and ability to work "smarter not harder"
with limited resources. These groups can be autonomous, independent, and egalitarian, networks perhaps aligned with XR in some ways, but not "part of" XR in terms of formal organization and governance.
The Sociocratic Circle-organization Method (SCM) offers clear and
elegant approaches to accomplishing these goals. Based on simple yet powerful values and principles, the SCM provides well-designed processes for collaborative decision making, and innovative structural design that increases effectiveness at all levels.
