Boost agility and effectiveness with S3!

Learn how to grow more effective, happy and agile teams with Sociocracy 3.0!


How successful is your team or organisation? How awesome is your collaboration? Are decisions being taking smoothly while tapping into the collective intelligence? Is everyone committed? How clear are agreements and expectations within your organisation?

If these questions resonate with you, join us for this 1-day training about Sociocracy 3.0!

Sociocracy 3.0, also known as S3, is a free, modular and principles-based practical guide for people wishing to collaborate more effectively and grow happy, humane organisations. S3 builds on sociocratic practices, integrating principles from Agile and Lean and providing a rich collection of practical patterns to choose from and adapt, according to unique context and needs.

Next to tapping into the collective intelligence within teams, S3 facilitates co-creativity, fosters transparency and guarantees the equivalence of all participants in decision-making. Short governance cycles make self-organisation and dynamic steering achievable both for teams and for the whole organisation. S3 acts as “social technology” for unlocking ownership, engagement and a sense of purpose while promoting respect, diversity and inclusion.

In this introduction course, you will learn to apply a set of practical, easy-to-use S3 patterns that are typically used by Agile teams to strengthen and improve self-organisation, decision making and alignment across teams. We will combine theory and practice to make sure you can put things into practice immediately after this course!

Target audience

Learning S3 is immediately beneficial for everyone who needs better collaboration and more effective decision-making in his or her team or organisation. Due to the alignment with Lean and Agile principles,more and more Scrum Masters and Agile coaches are pulling in S3 patterns to strengthen and deepen Kanban, Scrum or XP.
