La démocratie dans l'entreprise

Peut-on instituer une véritable démocratie dans l'entreprise ? Y a-t-il des similarités avec la démocratie politique qui nous est familière ? Quelles sont les solutions proposées par les coopératives et les mutuelles implantées depuis longtemps en France ? Quelles sont les limites de ces modèles ?
La MAIF, le Crédit Coopératif et le Groupe Up (anciennement Groupe Chèque Déjeuner), en tant que mutuelle et coopératives, sont engagées depuis longtemps dans le maintien d'une gouvernance partagée.
Les Présidents de ces trois organisations partageront leurs expériences au cours de ce panel.

Introduction to Plaform Cooperativism
The seeds are being planted for a new kind of online economy—one owned and governed by the people who depend on it. For all the wonders the Internet brings us, it is dominated by an economics of monopoly, extraction, and surveillance. Ordinary users retain little control over their personal data, and the digital workplace is creeping into every corner of workers’ lives. Online platforms often exploit and exacerbate existing inequalities in society, even while promising to be the great equalizers. Could the Internet be owned and governed differently? What if Uber drivers could set up their own platform, or if cities could control their own version of Airbnb? What if we had an Internet of ownership?

Communities for Commons: Ideas for Engagement
Volunteer labor is all over the sharing economy. Much of it builds brands and economic value that becomes property of platforms themselves. Building better platforms means more than dialing-up "engagement" – it involves welcoming and supporting volunteer labor in all of its forms. This talk shares two stories, explores the tension of labor for lifestyle and livelihood, and pulls out lessons for cooperative and commons-based platforms.

Power to the Contributors? Governance Models in the Collaborative Economy
Today, collaborative organizations rely on many external contributors to provide the services they offer. How can platforms share the decision-making power with their external contributors? How can they reward and associate contributors while meeting their own organizational requirements? How can governance be a factor to make an organization more sustainable as well as making the stakeholders feel recognized? 
Many collaborative organizations are already experimenting with governance processes and structures in order to better integrate their stakeholders. To illustrate this, Marguerite will share the experience of 3 French examples drawn the study "Gouvernances", which she is co-leading for OuiShare:
- France Barter is a B2B barter system structured as a multistakeholder cooperative.  
- Mon Pti Voisinage is a neighborhood social network that aggregates collaborative services in a given area. 
- Practishare is a open source no nprofit platform that helps communities share solutions and organize knowledge.

Networked Models for 21st-Century Organizations

How can we structure an organization so that it keeps up with the complexity of its environment? Many of tomorrow's organizations (or is it today's?) will have decentralized activities, based on many different contributors in and out the organization itself. Products and services will need to be continuously adapted, giving organizations a strong entrepreneurial feel. Workers will seek short or long-time project engagements while keeping a strong affiliation to one or more communities. Can we still talk about organizations or should we talk about networks or communities? What changes does that entail? How can traditional organizations be inspired?
Some organizations are already ahead of times and experimenting with the most innovative forms of operating. Come meet them! Lab.coop from Hungary, Faircoop from Spain, and Esnpiral from New Zealand (and beyond) will introduce their model before discussing them.

Bossless Organizations in Practice
Last year at OuiShare Fest 15, we explored the lessons learned from "building self-managed organizations". This year we move the discussion forward by asking startups and traditional companies how they have deployed a range of practices for autonomy in their own context. Some have been experimenting with a range of practices while others have been going through widespread organizational transformation.
Does a "bossless" organization mean the end or a transformation of hierarchies? What opportunities has it created for the people involved? What practices should be recommended? What should be avoided?
Participants from 3 companies will share their experiments: 
  • Poult is a French industrial biscuit company which is famous for being one of the pioneers, decades ago, in experimenting with autonomous management. 
  • Buffer, an app that helps you manage your social media visibility, has tried out self-management before backing out and coming back to more conventional hierarchies. 
  • A Little Market is a marketplace for crafted products which recently set up rotating leadership among its teams. 
  • Cocoon Projects is a distributed collective experimenting with agility processes. 
As autonomous management is picking up, it's time to learn from experience!

Return of the Co-op: Building the Next-Generation Sharing Economy

Can an old model be the basis for a new economy? Can the cooperative status and the #PlatformCoop movement offer an alternative to a capitalistic, value-captating model?
In practice, how can we build cooperatives for the digital age? 
In this workshop, founders of digital cooperatives and leaders of citizen-owned infrastructure cooperatives will share their experience. At the same time, entrepreneurs who wish to convert their collaborative organizations into full-on cooperatives will share their interrogations.
Come raise your own questions! You will be invited to discuss them during a World Café, with the help of featured experts.

New ways of measuring and distributing value: experiments and stories

We can observe today an increasing number of initiatives experimenting with alternative ways of measuring and sharing value in companies, communities and networks.

Why should we explore alternatives? Which alternative models already exist? Are monetary rewards necessary? How could we create a new model that better serves a creativity and knowledge economy?

This session brings together representatives from 4 different organizations that are asking themselves these questions and trying to find answers by building various new models for measuring contributions and distributing value.

The following organizations will share stories and concrete examples of successes and failures in pursuing this:

  • Cobudget, a collaborative funding and participatory budgeting tool, being used by the Enspiral network and other organizations.

  • Gratipay, a platform that provides payments and payroll for open work. They have launched pilot projects where employees set their own salaries.

  • Thanks & Share: a human learning & natural intelligence network that enables founders and contributors to share the company’s equity with a model they have developed.  

  • Cocoon Projects: an open enterprise that starts, supports and accelerates value driven, innovative projects. They’ve developed the Liquido framework for open companies.

DAO - Decentralized Autonomous Organizations: Can You Trust A Blockchain?
This session will address the question of trust (or "trustlessness") and how it relates to the question of human autonomy and agency. Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) are organizations operated on blockchain-based smart contracts which aim at removing the need for control measures to ensure trust. 
Can you trust a DAO that is completely autonomously operated? If not, can you trust the people who are operating it? How can a "trustless" technology like the blockchain bridge the gap between these 2 figures? How much agency should be given to a DAO? How to ensure that it does not take away human agency?

Conflicts and Collaboration

A storytelling workshop on tensions and emotions in self-organized work.

***

From school on we learn that conflict is bad. We are trained to avoid difficult conversations. In organizational life this translates into a pervasive culture of not telling each other what we really think. The problem is that collaborative and creative work depends on perspectives smashing into each other. How can we get comfortable with real conflicts and overcome “organizational defensiveness” (Chris Argyris)? In this workshop we will jointly elicit candid stories of enthusiasm, anxiety, trust and intimidation. A touching learning journey.
