Circle structure

sociocracy: effective governance

What

In organizations with more than one circle, circles are nested in a way so that each has clarity over their domain and can do its work while still being connected with the other circles.

Benefits

We need both-and: we need small groupsĀ where people know each other well and can do their work effectively. But we also need connections between groups. Nested circles are a good way of combining both. We can have effectiveness with transparency and coooperation.
