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.

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:
- Beyond “Dreamers vs Doers” — Full Circle Leadership
- How to Grow Distributed Leadership
- Bootstrapping a Bossless Organisation in 3 Easy Steps ;-)
- A Caring Organisation: Feelings, Magic & Gendered work
