Event description

Description

Rich and Nati have been supporting non-hierarchical organisations for more than six years, co-founding Loomio (a tech co-op building software for collective decision-making) and Enspiral (a network of self-organising companies).

We spent 2017 travelling through 13 countries, meeting with all kinds of groups who are trying to work without hierarchical management structures, in co-ops, startups, NGOs, companies, activist networks and government departments. We discovered that all these groups face common challenges when they remove the traditional command-and-control structure: How can we be inclusive without spending all our time in meetings? How do we deal with power imbalances? How do we prioritise what to work on? How do we develop an open collaborative culture? And where does accountability come from if there is no boss!?

In this workshop we'll share 8 collaboration patterns that have been proven to help groups overcome these challenges. We start with culture and relationships first, tools and processes second.

You can bring your real challenges that you are facing in your team, organisation, or collective and we'll work together to design solutions you can try immediately.
