A consent based decision making system – 4 to 8 May, 2016
When we work in communities, organizations, businesses & political parties we all seek-
-A spirit of co-creation, co-responsibility and collective ownership of the decision-making.
-Efficiency in our tasks and Jobs.
-Communication and integration between different parts of our organization.
-Full transparency with safety and trust between team members.
Sociocracy is a design system that makes these goals reachable. Its dynamic governance principles and consent based decision making processes involve every one in the organization’s decision-making processes; their voices matter equally. It is inspired by the Quakers, Cybernetics and Nature’s way of maintaining balance. It was developed in The Netherlands, first at an alternate school where the children’s learning space was governed in the spirit of partnership, and later at an electrical engineering company set up as an intentional management science laboratory. For-profit corporations, NGOs, schools, religious groups, communities, and networks in Europe, North and South America, and a few places in Oceania, Africa and Asia, including India, now successfully use it.
We will be having a five day workshop from May 4th TO 8th , 2016 at Jaipur. Since the concept is new for some people we have decided to offer two introductory talks on it in different parts of the city so people can get a taste of it and make an informed choice about attending the five day workshop. These introductory sessions are free and there is no entry contribution to it.
April 6th, 2016 from 5 pm to 7.30 pm at Startup Oasis – RIICO Software Complex,
EPIP, Sitapura Industrial Area,
Jaipur- 302022, Rajasthan (India)
April 11th 2016, 5 pm to 7.30 pm at B-234 Janta Colony, Adarsh Nagar, Jaipur, Rajasthan (Near Pink Square Mall)
