What did Horsens need?
A team from the Danish municipality of Horsens visited the Netherlands to learn more about self-organization. Amongst others, they visited Buurtzorg - the Dutch homecare institution that is widely recognized for its level of self-organization. To learn the basics of Holacracy, OrganizationBuilders hosted a Horsens-only taster workshop.
What did we do?
In a half-day training we explored the different concepts of Holacracy in the context of the public service space. We simulated the tactical and governance meeting and a Q&A on what Holacracy could mean for Horsens. The experience gained at the City of Amsterdam was extremely helpful, in particular the lessons we learnt on implementing and evaluating a multi-team pilot.
What are the results?
Our taster workshop served as a first introduction to Holacracy. Likely next steps are a multi-day training session like the Holacracy Practitioner Trainings. This will help in building support for adopting Holacracy, to which a limited scale pilot will be the first step.
