Many of us have implemented or used sociocracy in well-established groups or projects where we have time to train people to get them up to speed. But what about for short-term projects, where we do not necessarily have so much time. Rakesh has used sociocracy in many such situations, from one-day conferences to residential training courses. Let’s explore ideas of how to use sociocracy effectively to co-create events.
