El Roser

Location: Barcelona, Spain
Organization: school co-op
Size: 75 members

We are a hybrid cooperative (composed of working members and consumer members).  We started working with sociocracy from the very beginning of the foundation of the cooperative. We all came from an assembly environment and moved gradually to sociocracy, as we became aware of the benefits of some of its principles (elections, decisions by consent). With an almost 3 years perspective we can state that the use of sociocracy (combined with facilitation) has contributed to a more efficient structure in our daily activities.

What is a Help Desk?

After using sociocracy “by the book” for years and very successfully, we have started to introduce a new concept: a Help Desk circle. It introduces a small but extremely powerful nuance in what circles are and how we can decentralize decisions and operations while empowering everyone in the organization in moving things forward that they care about.
