sociocracy: effective governance

What

Proposals are generated in a collaborative way. It can be done by gathering proposal pieces from everyone in the circle (or a wider circle) and organizing them into one proposal.

Good policy is based on data, is supported by everyone in the group, incorporates input from objections, covers all dimensions of a topic (gathered in picture forming), has a term end and way of measuring whether it is effective and has the desired outcome.

Benefits

Decisions are what moves a group forward because it enables groups to put ideas into action. With collaborative (consent) decisions, we will have maximum buy-in, accountability and information. With many small decisions an evaluation after given time frames, an organization can adapt to its context very dynamically.
