"Holacracy" by Brian Robertson - book summary
Holacracy by Brian Robertson... the new management system that made headline news when Zappos asked that all its employees follow the system or take a pay to resign, and 14% of the employees took the option to leave.
The Holacracy’s structure resembles how nature organizes systems like the human body, where cells function autonomously within organs, which in turn function autonomously within the body.
The impetus behind Holacracy
The main idea behind this new system is that today’s companies have to survive in an increasingly complex and dynamic environment that requires an equally dynamic organizational structure in order to properly address new challenges and opportunities.
The solution germinated from the observation that humans have a unique ability to sense tension within an organization, which is defined as recognizing the gap of what currently exists, and what could be–the current reality... and the sensed potential.
