Are you responsible for enabling organizational transformation and change? These days there are hundreds of agile professionals and organizational development consultants around the world using Sociocracy 3.0 to help their customers. In fact, the majority of our customers are consultancy companies. They’re turning to S3 because it helps them to better support their customers develop their organizations with an iterative and incremental approach.
Sociocracy 3.0 gets past the limitations of prescriptive methods and frameworks, to meet people where they are. By complimenting what’s already working, it enables you to support your customers to develop a tailor-made, fit-for-purpose approach that responds to the actual challenges and opportunities they face.
S3 is complementary and compatible with any agile or lean framework, including but not limited to Scrum and its various scaling frameworks. It integrates core concepts and practices found in agile methodologies, lean management, Kanban (and KMM), Design Thinking, Teal Organizations and the family of sociocracy-based governance methods (SCM/ Dynamic Governance, Holacracy® etc).
With Sociocracy 3.0, there’s no need for a sudden radical reorganization or planning a long-term change initiative. You pull in patterns and make changes as you need. Evolving organizations in this way helps avoid a lot of waste, but we’ve learned over the years that getting the best out of S3 requires an investment in learning
and developing expertise. This is true both for using the patterns oneself, but also for helping others to get the best out of S3.
