Hierarchy is dead! Long live Holacracy! ...Right?

Hierarchy is dead! Long live Holacracy! ...Right? | @liminno | Scoop.it

Why do so many articles on implementations of management-less companies being referred to as “eliminating hierarchy” mix that with Holacracy? Why would a company then need Holacracy?

 

Take the Zappos gets rid of managers example – read on because there’s no mentioning of eliminating hierarchy. They are implementing a holacracy for a clear Purpose: they attempt to prevent bureaucracy from infiltrating Zappos, while maintaining a start-up culture within what is now, a quite large organization. They attempt to build Resilience against bureaucracy. It is what they believe to be needed to maintain a start-up culture.

The ideas we have developed and used for at least 4 decades are gradually becoming incorporated into how we think of organizations on a more regular basis

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 7, 6:18 AM

The article challenges the assumption that holocracy eliminates hierarchies. From the piece: 

 

"Holacracy claims to ....change  the concept of organizational structure from one that is autocratic and top-down to one that is decentralized, organic, and bottom-up. Ultimately, the vision of Holacracy is to allow the emergent, creative properties of the individuals playing roles within an organization to self-organize and flourish, much like human cells are organized into organs, which in turn are organized into bodies and minds, which in turn go forth into the world to express their purpose as humans."

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist"

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist" | @liminno | Scoop.it
“Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. “Remember when people used to try to predict the future?” In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea. This kind of bottom-up innovation is seen in the most fascinating, futuristic projects emerging today, and it starts, he says, with being open and alert to what’s going on around you right now. Don’t be a futurist, he suggests: be a now-ist.

Inspiring leadership is what we have all been led to believe creates successful businesses. The fact that history is dotted with examples of successful companies which businesses study closely for clues their own leaders can emulate, clearly shows that we believe there is a formulaic style of leadership which is key to a thriving business. If only it were that simple. Kate Tojeiro, founder of progressive leadership consultancy, X-Fusion, takes a closer look at two key types of leaders.

Shifting the Meaning of Hierarchy to Community

Shifting the Meaning of Hierarchy to Community | @liminno | Scoop.it

Over the last year or so, a fascinating bow wave of interest has been converging on a growing cadre of companies who appear to be doing something quite novel and seemingly new. Specifically, these organizations have apparently thrown off many of the traditional structures and processes of corporate management. Interestingly, all of these organizations are focusing on change through people first, technology second, if at all.

Are You Ready to Lose Control?

Are You Ready to Lose Control? | @liminno | Scoop.it

Control: It’s the essence of management. We’re trained to measure inputs, throughputs, and outputs in hopes of increasing efficiency and producing desired results. In a world of linear processes, such as in the factories of the Industrial Age, that made sense. But in today’s knowledge economy, where enterprises are complex, adaptive systems, it’s counterproductive.

 

The real problem is confusion between control and order. Control implies centralized control and hierarchical relationships. The person with control tells others what to do and whether they are successful or not. Order, on the other hand, emerges from self-organization. There may not be anyone telling others what to do, yet things get done—often with great efficiency and effectiveness. People know what is expected of them and what they can expect of others.

 

But how can this be true? Mustn’t an orchestra have a conductor? A dance troupe, a choreographer? A company, a CEO?

 

Not necessarily. Nature abounds with examples of what is known as swarm intelligence. Termites build intricate dwellings without the benefit of set of plans or engineers with advanced degrees. Birds migrate thousands of miles in formations where the lead position rotates to optimize their collective capacity. There are no marching orders or hierarchies dictating who leads. Massive flocks of starlings engage in intricate maneuvers known as murmuration with neither collisions nor confusion. There is order without overarching control. Indeed, our obsession with control helps explain why human-designed organizations fail to achieve such beautiful synchronicity.

This ties with the Belasco and Stayer thinking. Humans tend to seek control. Feeling out of control of ourselves and our lives can cause physiological effects. So passing it to others is tough.
Steve Bax's curator insight, April 23, 4:43 AM

Another stimulating scoop from Kenneth. This ties with the Buffalo and Geese theory from Belasco and Stayer. Passing control to others is not always easy.

It’s Better to Start a Business While You’re Employed Elsewhere: Study

It’s Better to Start a Business While You’re Employed Elsewhere: Study | @liminno | Scoop.it
Professors Joseph Raffiee and Jie Feng at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that “hybrid” entrepreneurs – people who maintain their regular gig and while launching their new ventures in stages – are a third less likely to fail than those who jump in sans safety net.

Additionally, they maintain that hybrid business owners who transition to full-time self-employment “have much higher rates of survival relative” to those who quit their job and then directly start a new company. There is always a factor of risk when launching a new venture, but the study purports that you don’t need to thrive on risk in order to be effective.

How to Prioritize Your Innovation Budget

How to Prioritize Your Innovation Budget | @liminno | Scoop.it

Leaders and organizations are under more stress than ever to do two things simultaneously: deliver on today’s pressing commitments by troubleshooting and refining processes; and find and invest in innovation opportunities that will create tomorrow’s success.


How your organization responds to this stress in allocating scarce resources is a crucial but often unaddressed issue. The natural bias is to respond immediately to what is in front of you. The problem is, this instinct crowds out longer term, innovative thinking.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 26, 7:11 AM

Here, on average, is what leaders estimate they were currently spending their time on:


  • 85% on day-to-day operations
  • 5% on incremental improvements that produced faster, cheaper, better sameness
  • 5% on small sustaining innovations
  • 5% on big, disruptive innovations


Perspective matters, and is the key to leadership effectiveness. To make sense of what’s happening in the world and anticipate what the future has in store, an intelligent, informed perspective is now more important than ever.

Transitioning from globalization to Eco-Localism.

So much is happening in this world

I like how Fritjof Capra writes it:

"

We do not need to invent sustainable human communities. We can learn from societies that have lived sustainably for centuries. We can also model communities after nature's ecosystems, which are sustainable communities of plants, animals, and microorganisms. Since the outstanding characteristic of the biosphere is its inherent ability to sustain life, a sustainable human community must be designed in such a manner that its technologies and social institutions honor, support, and cooperate with nature's inherent ability to sustain life."

John Payne's curator insight, July 20, 10:47 AM

I doubt the narrator of this video would recognize roboticists as allies, and also expect that many roboticists won't immediately see a connection. That connection is encapsulated in the word "attention".  In a world in which farmers are hard-pressed to find enough help at a wage they can afford, there isn't enough attention to go around, With the result that crops not requiring so much attention are substituted for those requiring more, and, where no subsidies exist, concern for environmental issues go wanting. Robotics can supply the needed attention, in the most basic sense for now, but eventually in all senses of the word.

Design Thinking is Dead. Long Live Design Thinking. | @liminno | Scoop.it

I remember a few years ago, every conference I went to featured a talk about Design Thinking. The term, which refers to how companies tackle problem solving in co-creative and multidisciplinary teams using a fast-paced and iterative approach, possibly got a bit over-used. Then, user experience and digital innovation started grabbing the headlines, and Design Thinking started to fall by the side.

How to Manage Talented People by Not Bossing Them Around

How to Manage Talented People by Not Bossing Them Around | @liminno | Scoop.it
Getting rid of managers may seem like just another tech trend, but much of the skepticism around going “bossless” or flat is due to misleading terminology.
Gisele HELOU's insight:

Rather than assigning and approving tasks at every turn, then, management is about keeping people in motion and getting out of their way.

 

Power, leadership, and even hierarchy still exist in these alternative structures, but instead of running along career ladders and hanging out in corner offices, they tend to be decentralized and dynamic rather than static and top-down.
