Want To Banish Bureaucracy? There's A Better Way Than Zappos' 'Holacracy'

Want To Banish Bureaucracy? There's A Better Way Than Zappos' 'Holacracy' | Innovation and Creativity | Scoop.it

This article is by Harry Kraemer, professor of management at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and author of Becoming the Best: Build a World-Class Organization Through Values-Based Leadership.

In late 2013 the online retailer Zappos announced that it would adopt “holacracy”—an organizational structure without job titles—to banish bureaucracy, essentially getting rid of managers and putting everyone in charge of their own work and how it gets done. The company is to be commended for attacking the scourge of excess bureaucracy that can bog down any organization, but eliminating managers may not be the best way.

The holes in holacracy

The holes in holacracy | Innovation and Creativity | Scoop.it

EVERY so often a company emerges from the herd to be lauded as the embodiment of leading-edge management thinking. Think of Toyota and its lean manufacturing system, say, or GE and Six Sigma excellence. The latest candidate for apotheosis is Zappos, an online vendor of shoes and clothes (owned by Amazon), which believes that happy workers breed happy customers. Tony Hsieh, its boss, said last year that he will turn the firm into a “holacracy”, replacing its hierarchy with a more democratic system of overlapping, self-organising teams. Until Zappos embraced it, no big company had taken holacracy seriously. Indeed, not all of Zappos’ 1,500-strong workforce are convinced that it can work.

Open innovation, with roots in Procter & Gamble’s well-known “Connect + Develop” strategy, blends a ‘firm’s internal assets with the seemingly limitless knowledge pool outside of the ‘firm. “Open innovation is about combining your assets with the assets of the world . Put them together so that you can drive superior shareholder value for the company and satisfaction for the customer,” Huston said. One important capability for driving open innovation is the establishment of an innovation hub, which Munoz described in detail for attendees at the Wharton University Mack Center for Technological Innovation.

You can't impose a culture of innovation

So here's the interesting question: is innovation emergent, constructed, coerced or otherwise imposed on an organizational culture? Clearly, almost every firm was "innovative" at one time, when it was a scrappy newcomer and had to out-innovate the competition to win.
