About the event

Navigate complexity, increase innovation, improve performance and raise engagement throughout the entire organization, with Sociocracy 3.0.

Cross-team synchronization, collaborative innovation, whole system coherence

From growing agile and responsive learning organizations, to governance and decision making, Sociocracy 3.0 brings together an extensive collection of guidelines and practices that can help. You’ll collaborate with others, learn patterns and build competence applying them to respond to a diversity of typical organizational needs. Discover new practices and develop useful skills you can take home and start using right away, whatever your organizational context.

Location: A beautiful mansion located in Caldetas, near Mataro, 40 km away from Barcelona, easily reachable by direct train from the city center or a 45 minute taxi journey from the airport. Only 5 minutes from the beach, the house has magnificent gardens, private tennis, big pool and horses and it's perfect to accommodate up to 15 participants for the course.

This course will help you to:

  • understand the basic elements of S3: the concepts, principles, and a majority of patterns and their purpose.
  • identify and communicate organizational needs, seize opportunities and learn how an entire organization can improve its ability to consciously respond.
  • co-create proposals, effectively make and evolve decisions in rapid learning cycles and guide others to do so, using patterns from S3.
  • more effectively distribute and organize work, foster engagement and self-responsibility, and improve meeting effectiveness.
  • evolve fit-for-purpose organizational structure, reduce waste and maximize value creation throughout the entire system.
  • identify specific patterns and practices you can use right away to respond to organizational challenges you face.

During this learning journey you will:

  • develop your general knowledge and understanding of the body of S3 concepts, principles and patterns.
  • explore how to identify, communicate and effectively respond to organizational needs throughout an organizational system.
  • practice using S3 patterns for making and evolving agreements, improving meeting effectiveness and enabling personal and group development.
  • examine practices for effective facilitation and participation in collaborative group interactions.
  • apply S3 patterns to kick-start a (simulated) grassroots organization and move rapidly from concept to action in self-organizing groups.
  • examine various ways to build and evolve organizational structure to support the continuous flow of value.
  • frequently reflect on your practice and learning with others and develop your reflexivity.

This course is for:

  • Leaders and managers
