How does Percolab work Percolab un cabinet conseil en collaboration. We accompany people and organizations to work better together. A collective on consultants who work on projects relating to the future of work and the future of cities. -new competency for the human resources of quebec -the nacelles , urban furniture for collaboration -.. The website says: Walking the paradigm shifts, together - Practices, models and technologies for an emerging future Transparent financial decision about a project. How much do you want to get paid (min, max). Money comes in via the projects, contracts and clients. And there is also all of the operational work to support the organization (roles). Responsibility for roles is held by the core members. The person responsible for a role is in charge of making sure the work gets done, not necessairly doing it themselves. 3 month check-ins on roles to make sure they are going well. Add or remove roles as needed. Members of the coop are project managers, and invite collaborations. Similarly for roles, they hold the responsibility for the task but many people can be involved in making it happen. Each person brings in different types of work, responding to calls for proposals, maintaining relationships with partners. Can it be any type of project? - it should follow 3 key words -commons -self-management -art of hosting (AoH)
Notes from an Interview with Samantha about Percolab. Harvested in Hungary, June 2017, by Phoebe Tickell
Company is run as a Future of Work Lab.
There is a certain freedom to the type of work people do but there is a certain coherence. It takes time to truly understand how Percolab works, you need to be around.
Too used for all internal decisions. Doesn’t always take the full process. The tool is to get to a forward moving conclusion. This tool is for that moment when the project needs to move forward, it is for after brainstorms, talks, conversations. It’s to be used when there is maturity in the process.
This is not consensus, it’s consent based (I can live with this decision).
Process (the facilitator needs to be hard-core sticking to the procedure):
One person writes out the first proposal. This needs to be including all your assumptions. The group asks itself: Is this RIPE for a decision making process? People asks clarification questions. There is no order. (proposal maker needs to be really aware that people are “attacking” their idea, not the person) Reaction round: everyone must share their reactions. EVERYONE. The proposal writter, writes a new proposal, hopefully taking enough of each individuals opinion so the proposal can move forward. Objection Round: not everyone needs to object. Just those objections that express and refer to danger or strong pain. Opinions are not welcomed here, just true dangers or those things that wouldn’t let you live with that proposal. At the end, everyone needs to be able to Live with the Decision.
- It is possible that, in the middle of the process, we find out that “the theme is not RIPE”
It’s important to mention that this Decision Making process is connected to a mindset: in complex realities, we ought to be in movement, we ought to be open for change. We ought to prototype and iterate, and so this decision making process is not about sitting around and theorize but moving on, even if it’s a tiny bit.
Some current projects
Nacelles: furniture designed by a French company that can be assembled in a participatory way in any urban space in about 20 minutes. For gatherings and intimate conversations in public spaces. Held conversations and storytellings on diversity in Montreal. 2 weeks ago, Percolab held a public consultation in the nacelles. Next summer another project, cultural activities in parcs around inclusion for new arrivals to canada. A partnership with comm1possible.
CRHA - Human resources of Quebec Creating a new competency framework for the HR profession. A co-creative process, 6 different workshops, association, universities. Including a fishbowl conversation with Frederic Laloux - author of reinventing organizations. Little video on Reinventing Organizations Long conference from Laloux
Sam is hosting, Ezra is taking photos, Elizabeth will be doing a written synthesis and Chloe a visual synthesis. Integration of the whole team.
Listening platform/interface d’écoute: Another project to listen to what the city thinks of itself
Cedric and Elizabeth hosted the Social Innovation Challenge. Comments from it was that is was much more collaborative than the ones held in other places in Canada.
Percolab won the call for tenders for the public space next to Ecto.
