Sociocracy (“governance by peers”) is a process for creating harmonious organizations, based on the values of equality, efficiency, and transparency. It is:

  1. A method for ongoing project management and governance, involving groups of people (circles) and double-links between two circles.
  2. A decision making method “Consent Decision Making”. A decision is only taken if there is no paramount reasoned objection against it.
