Product description

Review

Holacracy is the opposite of the cliché way to run a startup. People romanticize startup cultures and their lack of structure, but it creates anxiety and inefficiency, whether we have to build consensus around every decision, or deal with land grabs for power. In contrast, Holacracy creates clarity: who is in charge of what, and who makes each kind of decision - and there is a system for changing that, so it's very flexible at the same time (Evan Williams, co-founder of Twitter and Medium)

This book reminds me of a book that I must have read 100 times during my quest to become a better poker player. The first reading will most likely result in a complete paradigm shift, and you'll gain new insight every single time you reread it, especially when interspersed with actual practice playing the game on a regular basis. I highly recommend this book as your 'Holacracy Bible' if you're looking to explore a new way of working (Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Delivering Happiness)

Holacracy is a difficult concept to understand, but its founder Brian Robertson breaks it down simply and thoroughly. Regardless of your conclusion about the system's potential, it is undoubtedly the alternative management approach that will be getting the most attention over the next few years as we see how it affects thousands of employees around the world. (20 business books to read this summer World Economic Forum 'Agenda')

engagingly straightforward (Bloomberg)

From the Back Cover

In traditional companies, managers make decisions, and workers execute the plan. But Holacracy is a revolutionary and tried-and-tested new system which turns everyone into a leader. The organisation looks like a nest of circles, not a pyramid -- but it's not anarchy. It's finally clear who should make each decision -- the person on the frontline has that authority -- and the organisation succeeds by adapting swiftly to pursue its purpose.

In Holacracy, creator Brian Robertson explains how to adopt this system across your organisation -- and what you can do just within your department or for yourself -- and how to overcome any obstacles along the way.
