Lean, Agile, Teal…. how does sociocracy fit in? – François Knuchel


Increasingly people are aware a new world is emerging, but what it looks like is unclear.

How can sociocracy work with all these disparate movements?

Will sociocracy ever become mainstream? I believe it could, or at least the principles of sociocracy could, because it celebrates and respects both diversity as well as convergence through consent, enabling new perspective to emerge, all conditions for living organisations.
