Learn about the principles of Sociocracy 3.0 and how its modular menu of patterns can help organizations to navigate complexity, tap collective intelligence to continually innovate, and grow organization wide agility at any scale.

This workshop reveals some basic principles and practices for doing so in ways that make the best use of a diversity of perspectives while avoiding the pitfall of consensus decision making paralysis!
