What did ABN Amro need?
Within ABN AMRO Escrow we are for four months into exploring self-organization with two teams. We are one of the first teams within the bank to try self-organization. We were looking for a concrete methodology we could apply within our team.
What did we do?
In a half-day training we explored the different concepts of Holacracy. We simulated the tactical and governance meeting to get a hands-on experience with the different Holacracy concepts and did a lot of Q&A on how to apply within our own team.
What are the results?
We now have better knowledge of what it takes to become self-organizing within a large corporate organization. It was an intense workshop filled with many concepts that are worth exploring one-by-one. The Holacracy way to define roles, its meeting structure, the supporting tools, as well as the approach to dynamic governance. It also helped us to develop a common language and understanding of what self-organization is.
