SVODN Holacracy Demystified -March 2017

Holacracy® is an approach to running an organization based on a system of extreme empowerment and self-management. It was created in 2007 and is now used by hundreds of organization around the world, of all types and sizes. Holacracy is quite different from how organizations are traditionally managed and as a result it is often misunderstood. Holacracy does not use a management hierarchy, but it is not “structureless” or “flat”. In fact, Holacracy has a very defined structure that evolves in a dynamic way through the Holacracy governance process. Everyone in the organization participates in this governance, but decisions are not made by consensus. There is a lot of autonomy, but there are also very clear accountabilities and new approaches for maintaining alignment.
