Sociocracy or dynamic governance -

Made popular by Gerard Endenburg (1933-)

slide2

Endenburg built on the thinking of Frank Ward (father of sociology in the US) who conceived of a society built on scientific thought rather than divide right

slide3

Ward’s thinking was expanded by KeesBoeke (1884-1966) who was a Dutch Quaker and pacifist who saw education as a primary tool for peace.

slide4

Endenburg was the first to define a set of principles that allowed sociocracy to be applied apart from religious or small communities

slide5

Endenburg’s design reflects the work of early systems thinkers who stressed to understand behavior, we must understand the general system in which it exists.

slide7

Endenburg created a new governance structure that extends the governing powers usually accorded to a board of directors to all levels of the organization

slide8

Sociocracy: Four foundational concepts: policy decisions made by consent; circles for making decisions; double linking between circles, and the election of people by consent

slide9

1. Consent: the absence of paramount objections

Does anyone have any reason why they couldn’t support this proposal?

slide10

2. Circles for making decisions: the governance structure extends governing powers to all levels of the organization (groups or circles)

slide11

3. Double linking between circles: two people (not one) act as feed-back and feed-forward loops carrying information back and forth from the top to the bottom of the organization

slide12

4. Election of people by consent:One of the most important decisions of a circle is who represents you.

slide14

Everyone therefore helps create and define:vision, mission, aim, process (goals), communication, tasks, evolution

slide16

A Living, dynamic circular structure allows each person to work whole-heartedly (head, heart and will) toward the organization’s agreed upon goals inviting greater creativity and the generative thinking needed to address the “swamp” issues of our time.
