Decentralised Decision Making Workshop

April 3rd.   4 - 7pm. Newspeak House LONDON

This training explores how we make group decisions when there’s no top-down command-and-control structure.


You'll learn different decision-making protocols, like consensus, consent, and the advice process. We’ll unpack the neuroscience of cognitive biases, and how to de-bias your decisions. And we’ll investigate how digital tools can help you make collective decision more efficiently.

Who is this for


Ideal for groups working with less hierarchy and more collaboration: cooperatives, self-managing teams, startups, Teal organisations, Agile squads, innovation units, flat NGOs… if you’re growing a participatory culture of shared leadership and mutual accountability, this training is for you.

 

Training Methodology

  • Our knowledge is rooted in our lived experience in our own organisations at the forefront of collaborative work practice.

  • We bring examples from different groups around the world, as well as research from academic studies.

  • We host participatory learning exercises for participants to reflect on how these lessons apply in their group context.
