Sociocracy is a mode of decision-making and government that allows an organization, whatever its size – from a family in a country – behave as a living organism, self-organizing and self-correcting. The most important objective is the development of co-participation and co-responsibility of the actors, giving power to collective intelligence in search of the success of the organization and supporting a way to increase productivity, security, happiness and commitment.
It is a systemic approach to designing, managing and leading organizations based on principles, methods and a structure that creates a resilient and coherent system. It uses transparency, inclusion, and accountability to increase harmony, effectiveness, and productivity in organizations of any type, from factories to co-housing projects, schools, businesses of any size, or networks of organizations.
