Sociocracy is...

 an operating system of governance that creates a horizontal flow of distributed power with feedback loops.

In the past 3 years more than 2,000 blockchain projects have failed.  Forbes, Cointelegraph and Deloitte have written about governance being one of the key areas of failure.

The global blockchain market size is expected to grow more than 13X -- from $3 Billion USD in 2020 to $39.7 Billion USD by 2025.  The money is here to fund talented developers and teams but how to retain them?

Ineffective meetings drain energy, waste time, and slow down results. When meetings are dominated by a few loud voices or go in circles instead of defining clear next steps, it feels chaotic and repetitive.

Sociocracy aligns the ethos of distributed technology with a parallel distributed governance system.

"We adopted sociocracy 15 years ago and all of a sudden had energized people empowered and making decisions.

We have fewer meetings, our decisions are better, and the follow-through is stronger because everyone's on board."

Paul Kervick

How it works

They say 'the more you tell, the more you sell' which is true... but only if people actually read what you write.

Benefits of Sociocratic Governance

Improved Retention

When team members feel their voices are heard, the work is self-managed, and the culture is inclusive... improved retention is a natural result.

Better Decisions

The wisdom of the crowd produces decisions the crowd fully supports.  The sociocracy process uncovers objections that would otherwise remain hidden. 

Energized Teams

When teams arrive at decisions together, it's energizing! No one leaves a meeting feeling unheard. Meetings become fun and productive.

Alignment with Ethos

Building decentralized tech using decentralized governance creates inner and outer alignment.

Increased Effectiveness

When everyone consents to a decision, there is no time lost revisiting the same issues or worse becoming fractured or disfunctional.

Fosters Transparency

Sociocracy's double linking ensures representation throughout the organization's decision making.  Actively inviting objections encourages transparent sharing. 

"GovernanceAlive works with organizations that desire to give voice to all of their employees so as to create a valuable feedback loop to top management.  This ultimately facilitates communications, engenders greater trust and connectedness throughout the organization, which in turn increases productivity and profits.” 

Larry Checo, Branding Guru

So many decisions to make...

Humans building blockchains know the value of decentralized technology and naturally want to experience it when operating as a team.

Teams feel empowered and make better decisions when arriving at solutions together.

What are our priorities?

How are new members onboarded?

How do we handle disagreements?

How will we fund ourselves?

What is our change management process? 
How will we take care of ongoing manintenance?

What happens if we don't have a governance model that aligns with our aim of decentralization?

"We're seeing that sociocracy is a much better model among the adults in our school because we're being more creative and we're working together in a much better fashion than we were before."
