These tools have helped us so far to navigate this project on our journey
Navigating the flow of information and influence
Sociocracy 3.0 is a modular toolbox that helps effective collaboration at any scale.
Effectiveness: Devote time only to what brings you closer towards achieving your objectives.
Consent: Do things in the absence of reasons not to.
Empiricism: Test all assumptions through experiments, continuous revision and falsification.
Continuous Improvement: Change incrementally to accommodate steady empirical learning.
Equivalence: People affected by decisions influence and change them on the basis of reasons to do so.
Transparency: All information is available to everyone in an organization, unless there is a reason for confidentiality.
Accountability: Respond when something is needed, do what you agreed to and take ownership for the course of the organization.
Navigating the flow of relationships and feelings
In our dominant culture our words and our way of speaking often lead to injury and suffering – in others as well as in ourselves. A careful handling of communication helps us to listen more consciously to each other and ourselves. At the same time, we need to express ourselves honestly and clearly. Nonviolent Communication, Possibility Management and Bohm’s Dialogue have helped us so far.
Navigating the flow of good ideas
Once manageable systems become highly dynamic and complex as a result of social and economic change and in particular through comprehensive digitalization. Design Thinking is an effective way to deal with the complex tasks of our present time. There is also a corresponding response in the creative co-operation to the changing changes. We think design thinking is one of them.
