Sociocracy 3.0 - or S3 in short - brings together an extensive collection of guidelines and practices. These practices respond to many organisational needs, including growing agile and responsive learning organisations, participatory decision making and more effective collaboration.

You will learn the S3 principles and patterns and build competence applying them to respond to a diversity of typical organisational challenges. You will collaborate with others, discover new practices and develop useful skills you can take home and start using right away, regardless of your organisational context.
