Social Tools Training Circle No. 1

Welcome to the first follow-up event of the Social Tools 2018 conference. Since new practices cannot be established during a weekend workshop we decided to host six separate training sessions. The program for the sessions will be based on the "12 Patterns of Decentralized Organizing" as outlined by Nati Lombardo and Rich Bartlett (Enspiral/Loomio) in their workshop, which took place at the 2018 Social Tools Conference.

Session 1 will focus on Patterns 7+8: "Distinguish Commitment from Participation" and "A Toolbox of Decision Protocols".

Pattern 7 describes the issue of different levels of commitment in decentralized organisations and questions the assumption, that everyone should be seen as the same in such an organization.

Pattern 8 clarifies that different decisions require different decision-making tools. It might be for example difficult to run a decentralized organisation completely on consensus.

The event is intended as a peer learning session where we will exchange experiences and practices from our different backgrounds. We will do some exercises and deepen our understanding of the patterns. The session will conclude with a Case Clinic. These sessions are open to anyone – not only Social Tools conference participants. Some refreshments will be provided.
