Holacracy® is a complete, packaged system for self-management in organizations
If everyone has to think outside the box, maybe it's the box that needs fixing
Holacracy replaces the traditional management hierarchy with a new peer-to-peer “operating system” that increases transparency, accountability, and organizational agility. Through a transparent rule set and a tested meeting process, Holacracy allows businesses to distribute authority, powering all employees to take a leadership role and make meaningful decisions.
See Holacracy as an “Organizational operating system”. Just like you have on your PC. A new operating system makes a huge difference (remember shifting from Dos to Windows…). A good operating system is extremely powerful, but only gains value by installing the right apps on top of it. Similarly Holacracy is an much more effective operating system for organizations. On which you can install or develop your own apps to make it work for your own business.
What sets Holacracy apart to other self-organization approach is that it is a complete operating system that is a full replacement of the current management hierarchy and doesn’t require to be designed upfront. Just like you don’t tailor the operating system on your phone. Its much more effective to focus on installing the right apps you want to use and adjust those right at the moment it is relevant.
