I’ve been collecting examples of documents that describe how and why other co-operatives work. I’m also interested in the “handbooks” some non-cooperative companies publish, particularly when they discuss collective decision making, workplace democracy and so on. The ones I’ve collected are all broadly in the “tech” sector but I’d be interested in ones outside our industry.
I enjoy reading these things, and I thought others might be interested too. Here’s my list so far - if anyone else has some examples let me know and I’ll add them to the list:
- Enspiral’s handbook: New Zealand collective of co-operatives
- The Loomio Co-op Handbook
- Feeltrain’s operating agreement (Portland-based co-operative)
- Root Systems
