We work with self-guiding teams. In the past, I observed these teams talking endlessly without coming to a decision. The former managers still had to cut through a lot of resistance. With the sociocratic method, the teams make decisions well. --N. den Boer, Director, Refinery Safety Department, Shell Oil
I have looked into many possible models for self-guiding organizations but have found nothing that so mobilizes the commitment and creativity of people. Sociocracy tops all others. --Dr. A.J. Joldersma, Economic Director of Kramp Minded, The Netherlands
It s phenomenal how sociocracy accesses and makes available all the intelligence in the group. --Connie Lindholm, Executive Director, Wisconsin Green Building Alliance
From the Publisher
This is the first book on sociocracy by native English speaking authors and the first to place sociocracy in the context of the historical development of governance and management theory. While it presents the theoretical foundations and history of sociocratic principles and methods, it also contains extensive "how to" information.
