What is Holacracy®?
At the turn of the century, the 'command and control' management system, typified by industrial giants like GM, began to take shape. When the premium was on maximizing compliance and conformity, this system thrived. Over a century later continued the reliance on 'command and control' is leading to some of the most disengaged workforce statistics we've ever seen.
Holacracy is a new management model that transforms the static organizational structure into dynamic structure that provides real clarity into roles and accountabilities. This structure can be updated in real time as new opportunities and challenges emerge, allowing your company to evolve faster than ever. To aid evolution and responsiveness, Holacracy features a title- and manager-less structure where power is meaningfully distributed among roles that are executing the work.
Holacracy isn't the first, nor the only, model of self-organization. Companies like Valve, Spotify, and MorningStar all have integrated principles of self-organization into their companies with strong results. It's no surprise that more agile, self-organized companies are more productive, and ultimately more profitable.
