An organisation set up to support projects which have a strong sense of Self Organising Principles at their core
At SOS we have learned certain patterns do repeat themselves which if you understand you can mitigate project risk and improves a projects chance of success
Understanding People and Process
There are passionate people with ideas that are not process people with their ideas stumbling at predictable points.
Some of the areas we focus on are;
Structure, Finances, Documentation and Decision Map
SOS is here to help defer some of those set "In stone" decisions, allowing more time for the project to evolve and become stronger before going it alone.
Through the incubation the projects we encourage rehearsal, practising, making sure you have iterated a few times to have projects become aware of their own patterns. The more you can rehearse, practise and play, the better the first public performance will be.
SOS allows your project to incubate within a structure, giving it a freedom to evolve, take shape, develop your team, perfecting your processes before committing to a fixed form
The other area SOS focuses on through its own project The Lab is the role of technology allowing the above to be accomplished in a way which supports fairness, a sense of egalitarianism, equality.
