La sociocratie est un mode de gouvernance (de prise de décision) qui permet de mobiliser l'intelligence collective tout en tenant compte des points de vue individuels.
Ce livre est une excellente introduction : il est simple, très clair, il contient des informations sur l'histoire et l'origine de la sociocratie, décrit le fonctionnement, donne des outils pour mettre en place concrètement la sociocratie dans une organisation.
Ce livre est moins austère que les livres de Gerard Endenburg, le fondateur de la sociocratie sous sa forme actuelle. Ces derniers sont en revanche plus détaillés sur les principes et constituent un approfondissement indispensable pour ceux et celles qui désirent en savoir plus.

Ce livre est une introduction à la sociocratie. Il est très simple et donne des exemples de documents de références (structure d'une réunion, contenu d'un journal, vote).
Je le conseille vivement.

Sociocracy, dynamic self-governance, consent management 31 août 2009
Par Rogier F. van Vlissingen - Publié sur
Achat vérifié
At this point this book has to be the best title in English on this important topic. Previously John Buck had tried to translate Endenburg's original book into English, but that did not prove a workable solution, both because of the structure of the book and the challenges of the translation.

The current book is tantamount to a retelling of the Endenburg story in English, and is much more readable. Personally I do believe that the word sociocracy is a liability, in part because people react negatively to the association with socialism, never mind that it is not warranted at all, but more importantly because it simply is not a clear name. I much prefer the names of dynamic governance which some people have used, or consent management which I have favored.

Be that as it may, this material is important, and as a management system, this model will only grow in importance. It is very profound indeed, both theoretically and practically, as you will only learn by practicing it. I don't mean doing a workshop. By actually implementing it in a group and going through at least a year of evolution. For all the challenges will come up, and it is only through surmounting those challenges that you learn the model works. The simple truth is that people use organizations to hide, and in a consent organization there is no place to hide. The learning process is that transparency is not a threat, but it is the solution, namely it marshalls the collective ability to adapt to change in an unprecedented way, and organizational stasis is largely avoided. Thus once an organization truly learns to work with this model, watch out. The sky is the limit!

Dialogue, Decision Making and More Democratic Organizations 5 décembre 2007
Par Richard Lent - Publié sur
This book can be read in two ways: as an introduction to a more truly democratic way of organizing and governing organizations, or as a way to rethink how groups anywhere can improve dialogue and decision making to arrive at wiser outcomes. The way people talk together and the way they are organized are inextricably linked in organizations, and this book makes this linkage very clear.

We the People caused me to rethink how I view the roles of committees and teams from the perspective of how they could operate everyday as circles for dialogue and decision-making. The practices offered are simple and structural and easily fit within the way people work together day-day. The practices do not require people to change their behaviors, but only to follow a few process and organizational guidelines which can naturally help them work together more effectively. There are clear directions and good examples throughout. The section on the nature of consensus and consent as alternate approaches to decision-making is particularly helpful.

As I read the book I was reminded again and again of certain "democratically" run organizations, like town government and a church congregation, where these practices could be very helpful as an alternative to the practices (and side effects) of parliamentary procedure. I recommend this book to anyone interested in helping committees, teams and organizations run wiser, less polarizing meetings and organizations...or to those interested in rethinking the nature of democratic self-government.

The shift humans have to make to survive 8 septembre 2009
Par Frank T. Millich - Publié sur
This book is about a method of working together with other people to accomplish something. Our current governance models are based on domination and competition. They don't work very well and people don't feel good in them. Never fear! A better way has been developed!

An engineer, Gerard Endenburg, examined the power structure at his electronics firm from a technical point of view and thought it was a pretty bad system. He not only wanted to create a system that functioned better, but one that treated all it's participants like humans and not robots - based in cooperation, like living organisms are.

Endenburg had bought and rescued the failing company. Ten years later, in 1968, using technical theory and trial-and-error he started developing his system. He refined it for years and then started a center that shows others how to use it. Forty years later there are over 200 businesses and groups experienced with it. It has proven to be very successful and resilient.

I call this model DG, Dynamic Governance like the other reviewer. It rewires power and, in that way is a threat to the powers that be. It disperses concentrated power. It's a peaceful revolution, though. Slow change, from the inside. It would be great if it was faster though (Get the book, and tell other people about it!)

As for it's decision-making method, called "consent", I realized that to make a decision any other way would be giving up power. Having this power requires responsibility. I've interviewed a lot of people who work in DG enterprises. For many of them it takes about a year of using the method to really understand what it's about and become more proactive and involved in the enterprise. Getting involved feels good because the enterprise is better than it was and getting better. You can also not get very involved, if you want, but the power is still reserved there for you.

Well-written and informative, it is easy to read and explains everything you need to know to get familiar with the method. Unfortunately, this is the only book in English (besides Endenburg's two very dry books).

Disclaimer: I know both authors. I respect how much time they devote to trying to make the world a better place, and how much they know about DG. I know Endenburg, too, and respect his wisdom and intelligence.

Fascinating, loaded with a wide scope of insights. 26 juillet 2014

More eduction about governance than I've ever, I mean ever, received. Plus it teaches Sociocracy conceptually and practically, with instructions and guides to the process. After learning in a weekend workshop, and in the google group for Sociocracy, this book - nay The Book really ties it all together. I appreciate learning each piece of the history of Sociocracy, from being a basic philosophy to a clearly well thought out system for group decision making. To anyone interested in Sociocracy - buy this book now!
Dynamic Governance will only grow in importance! 23 juin 2013
Par Jan Hoglund - Publié sur
I initially published this review on

This is one of the most important books I have read! It gives a viable and very practical alternative to the traditional autocratic command-and-control management approach which we are so used to in our businesses and organizations. The dynamic governance structure described in the book is fundamentally different from traditional autocratic structures, which constrict rather than encourage leadership. Let me explain!

Dynamic governance, or sociocracy, is based on four principles: Decisions by consent (not consensus), circles, double linking between the circles, and elections of leaders by consent. This has huge implications on the organizational dynamism. The concept of leadership goes much deeper in a self-governed organization since each person is expected to take part in the daily leadership and decision-making. The election of leaders by consent, after open discussion, has a very positive effect on the working group and the way everyone works together. This in turn reduces friction, increases productivity, and improves quality. Feedback is embedded into the actual work through the governance structure. First we have the principle of consent which means feedback cannot be ignored within the circle. Then we have the double-linking which ensures feedback between the circles. This means that a dynamic governance organization is truly dynamic (or Agile) by design.

Once an organization learns to work this way it will outperform traditional autocratic organizations. I am convinced that dynamic governance principles will only grow in importance. They simply cannot be ignored in the long run.

Read the book and help spread the message!
