The Loomio Co-op Handbook

The software we build is open source, and our organisation is open source too. This handbook is where we document how we run an efficient organisation without a hierarchy.

We build software for collaborative decision making, used by thousands of organisations and communities around the world. If you’re looking for a way to make group decisions without meeting, try it out at loomio.org.


VIDEO: Loomio co-founder Alanna introducing the co-op handbook, and talking about why we open source our organisational development.

If you're viewing this on a small screen, you'll find a table of contents by clicking the menu icon at the top left.

Other stories about developing an open organisation

Besides this handbook, Alanna and Rich have written a bunch of stories based on their experience as two of the Loomio co-founders. Here's a couple:
