Redistributing Power in the Workplace (podcast)

At the end November, 2015, after the workshop hosted by Swedish Agile company CRISP, Dawna Jones invited CRISP consultant Michael Goethe and Sociocracy 3.0 co-founder James Priest to explain how Sociocracy 3.0 offers a scalable governance model, one more suited to engaging employees in the changes affecting them.



Listen to the conversation following this link to learn:

  • What CRISP is (hint: It’s not a potato chip!)

  • How CRISP operates without a CEO and why they decided to redistribute the position

  • The difference between traditional Sociocracy, Sociocracy 3.0 and Holacracy

  • How Sociocracy practices can speed efficiency and effectiveness

  • How to give people a voice in the decision making process

  • How S3 resolves some of the tensions traditional Sociocracy and Holacracy don’t

  • How to use tension to navigate change and scale agility.

"As companies look to become more agile finding ways to redistribute power need rigorous yet inclusive process. Sociocracy 3.0 is a governance process that companies can implement slowly, one skill-set at a time". (Dawna Jones)
