Sociocracy is founded on the idea that a more equal and democratic structure can create better work conditions and a more coherent system. As an organisational structure, sociocracy is used to create a balance between team member interdependence and autonomy. This approach can be more beneficial for making decisions than a traditional hierarchy that works from the top down. According to Sociocracyforall.org, sociocracy is a ‘peer governance system based on consent’.
