AEquacy Facilitation Certification Program

AEquacy is a human-centered, hierarchy free organizational design and operating system that changes the paradigm of traditional organization and paves the way for greater innovation, collaboration and performance.

Introducing AEquacy into organizations involves a radical change in their culture, the introduction of new ways of being and working within your company and a mentality that allows you to effectively manage high levels of autonomy and a strong assumption of responsibility with respect to your work and contribution to collective results. Supporting this transition in an effective and sustainable way requires a mix of specific knowledge and skills.

We have developed the AEquacy Facilitation Certification Program (AFCP) to accompany you step by step to the level of competence necessary towards the implementation of AEquacy, whether you are a professional internal or external to the company who intends to accompany individual teams, divisions, or an entire organization on this path.

The program is structured into 3 modules of 3 days each, interspersed with a period of practice to integrate the tools acquired. The classroom approach will be highly experiential in order to guarantee the necessary space to practice implementing the principles and practices of AEquacy. In addition, the certification program includes the participation in an AEquacy Taster, the one-day workshop that we designed to allow those interested in AEquacy or self-organization in general to experience the difference in effectiveness between AEquacy and the hierarchical paradigm.

The AEquacy Facilitator certification allows you to implement AEquacy within individual teams or organizations autonomously (up to 50 people involved) or with supervision (with implementations involving more than 50 people), to facilitate the AEquacy Taster with your customers or prospects and freely implement the individual practices acquired.

AEquacy Taster (1 day): a workshop to gain direct experience of the comparison between the characteristic dynamics of a hierarchical environment and those created when the AEquacy principles are observed.

Module 1 (3 days):

• Hierarchy and self-organization – current context and evolution of organizational models, because today self-organization can be an effective solution to the limits of traditional organizational structures;
• Hierarchy and AEquacy, the philosophy of AEquacy and exploration of its principles and structure;
• Introduction of practices and applications to a real case (Purpose and Values, OKR, Dynamic Roles, Consent Decision Making, Meeting Management Protocols, Role Election Process, Feedback Loops and Prototyping)

Module 2 (3 days)

• Review and in-depth analysis of the contents of Module 1;
• The AEquacy implementation process (phases, main challenges and how to manage them);
• How to evaluate the implementability of AEquacy, including using and debriefing the AEquacy Readiness Survey and delivering the AEquacy Taster
• Design of an AEquacy structure (organizational design);
• Preparation for Module 3 (Practicum)

Module 3 (3 days)

• Practice sessions with feedback on facilitating an organization’s entire transition to AEquacy
This course consists of 3 workshops of 3 days each. Between one module and another, participants are required to practice and complete tasks (as an estimate we expect an average of two hours per week of practice between individual and group work).
At the end of the training, credentials are awarded to individuals who have successfully completed the program by attending all modules and completing assigned tasks.
