Do any other coworking places do any form of open book management/member-led budgeting?
Right now Collective Agency has a monthly fund of revenue-sharing from a portion of revenue that exceeds fixed expenses, and members make choices on how to collectively spend it (computer monitors or parking pass reimbursement or new furniture, etc), facilitated by me.
I’m thinking of proposing that member collective autonomy over the big decisions that exceed money in the fund be expanded, reducing my role and members’ proxy agency, and increasing members’ collective agency. For example, how do we pay for/do we want to pay for additional conference rooms/phone rooms.
What have you seen work well, and what have you seen not work well, with collective budgeting, or member-led committeee of any kind?
