As Australian organisations continue to evolve we are faced with a challenge of how to best harness the benefits of Agility. Instead of providing a prescription, Sociocracy 3.0 (S3) invites us to experiment using patterns designed to be customised to context. In this workshop we'll explore a collection of S3 patterns that enable effective collaboration across disparate teams, departments or organisations. Some of the core pattern groups we’ll cover are;
- Co-creation and Evolution
- Organising Work
- Organisational Structure
Some more information on S3
Sociocracy 3.0 (S3) is a flexible open source guide that is purpose built to enhance collaboration at any scale. Founders Bernhard Bocklebrink and James Priest designed S3 with the intent for it to be suitable for any context. The result is an evolving set of patterns that lend themselves to a broad range of application. One of S3's greatest strengths is its modular design. Each pattern can be individually or in groups for added benefits. You can start from exactly where you are. There is no need to institute a large scale change, begin experimenting with a pattern that responds to an area that needs help. You can see all of the defined S3 patterns here; http://sociocracy30.org/.

Through experience he has found that the agile landscape provides a rich tapestry of tools that solve problems, success tends to be found in the ability to find the right tool for the situation.
During this meetup, John will not only go through S3 fundamental, and the meetup audiences will also get to experience and role play some of key S3 patterns
