- This case study features a homeschooling cooperative in Massachusetts (USA), after just having started out using sociocracy
- This case study is helpful if you
- are a volunteer organization with very flat hierarchy at the risk of burn out
- would like to get an understanding of what it is like to start implementing sociocracy
- “[…] homegrown collaboratives tend to be run by one or two highly focused people, a model that is efficient but ultimately unstable since these people are not always the easiest to get along with. [Andrew] feels that sociocracy releases much of the same energy but within a more sustainable and reasonably efficient structure.”
- This case study was written by Andy Grant, as part of his contribution to the Sociocracy Leadership Training. Thanks, Andy!
We are observers and participants of a paradigm shift in management. More and more attention is focused on dynamic governance, which slowly, but inevitably replaces the so-called traditional management, hierarchical in the power-over meaning of the word. Different names are being used to describe organizations operating under the new model.
