Along with that, you will be able to assist the people to appreciate the value that principles of S3 will bring into them.

  1. Principle of effectiveness – This is where you devote the time only on tasks that can help you to get closer to the goals or objectives that you want to achieve in the long run. Along with that, you can stay away from distracting from the work that will keep you away from achieving the goals as well.
  2. Principle of consent – This principle of Sociocracy 3.0 is all about raising and seeking out to resolve the objections to actions and decisions. When you come across a problem, you should resolve it by making appropriate decisions.
  3. Principle of empiricism – This principle is about testing all the assumptions that you have through experimentation methodologies. You will also be introducing continuous revision to ensure that they can deliver positive results.
  4. Principle of continuous improvement – This is where you change incrementally, so that you will be able to accommodate the steady empirical learning procedure.
  5. Principle of transparency – Principle of transparency is all about making the information accessible for everyone who works within the organization. This should be done only if there is no need to ensure privacy.
  6. Principle of equivalence – Principle of equivalence is about involving people to make and evolve the decisions, which will create an impact on them at the end of the day.
  7. Principle of accountability – Principle of accountability is responding when something is needed. Then the employees will be able to do what they agreed.
