It can also be defined as a "design system” or an “organizational design system" as opposed to a set of practices or methods for doing things. It places the emphasis on integral communications structure and a decision-making method that ensures equivalence between its members. Full-group consensus and a modified form of Robert’s Rules of Order don’t form a system that coherently designed. it can work but isn’t optimal. Sociocracy is designed so communities can continually adjust to changing circumstances--new members, disasters, opportunities, etc.--without disrupting community life. It values both scientific method of measuring and evaluating, and the social values of “freedom and equality for all.” Sharon ---- Sharon Villines Sociocracy: A Deeper Democracy http://www.sociocracy.info
