Many organizations today are experimenting with new tools and methods for increasing innovation, effectiveness and organizational agility. At the same time it’s becoming clear that each organization’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 that support all aspects of collaboration. It integrates lean and agile thinking, meets organizations where they are and provides a variety of compatible options to choose from and adapt, according to unique context and needs. 

This 40 minutes session will give you a big picture overview of S3, along with the opportunity to have a brief experience of some patterns in practice. 

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 organizations. 
S3 builds on the sociocratic principles and practices to provide a reliable and flexible framework that effectively taps into the collective intelligence within teams. It facilitates co-creativity, fosters transparency and guarantees the equivalence of all participants in decision making. 
Short governance iterations with a tight feedback loop (decide – experiment –review - evolve) make self-organization and dynamic steering achievable both for teams and for the whole organization. S3 acts as social technology for unlocking ownership, engagement and a sense of purpose, while promoting respect, diversity and inclusion. It is an invitation to bring greater awareness to underlying circumstances that motivate us to act.
