At Sociocracy for All’s 5th Annual
Global Sociocracy Conference 2022

Does sociocracy scale? (And if so, how?) —Ted Rau

? This presentation is in English ? It was live interpreted to Spanish and Portuguese the day of the conference.


In every organization, there are centralizing and decentralizing forces. In small or medium organizations with sociocracy, the centralizing forces can be managed more easily – but what happens at scale? How do budget, strategy and information flow work? What difficulties can we expect and how can we address them? How can everyone be as involved as possible while keeping the organization nimble?
