What is Organic Organization (O2)?

O2 is a social technology that helps organizations to become more adaptive, self-organized and purpose-centered. It is composed of a set of essential rules (its “Meta-Agreements”) plus a library of constantly evolving organizational patterns.

O2 IS Open-Source

O2 is available on GitHub and you can contribute by submitting pull requests. There is a community on Target Teal’s Slack of org-designers, facilitators and enthusiasts contributing to the creation of new patterns and improving the Meta-Agreements.

Mentoring and Consulting

We can also run trainings in company or create programs to train change agents internally. Get in touch to find out more so we can design something together.

Learning O2 by yourself

When we created Organic Organization, we dreamed of a free approach for organizations to use and consultants to sell. That’s why we do everything we can to make all the content we create about O2 available and accessible to everyone. If you want to start practicing O2, consider the links below:
