Both sociocracy and Holacracy are superb at harnessing tensions to drive change at the task and role level in an organisation.
Fragility 1: if you incorporate with governance only with one or two of the stakeholder groups, you build in a fragile power-over dynamic, incapable of harnessing the value in the tensions between any and all the stakeholder groups.
Fragility 2: without effective dialogue scaffolding to harness human tensions between and within each, human tensions and task/role tensions get conflated; but cannot be addressed at the task/role level.
