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

Hierarchy is dead! Long live Holacracy! ...Right? | New Economy | Scoop.it

Holacracy claims to design out these “features” by changing 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.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.

Patrick: I was wondering how it could be applied within the government agencies, I see how it can be applied from government to the larger social and environmental ecosystems. Sorry for the confusion! :)

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, 2014 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."

5 Signs That The Collaborative Economy Is Going Through Puberty

5 Signs That The Collaborative Economy Is Going Through Puberty | New Economy | Scoop.it
The collaborative economy is no longer a shiny new model of commerce, but rather in that awkward, in-between, adolescent stage .

I really appreciate the 5 signs that Lisa points to. Which are:

 

1. The voice has changed

People are choosing to share rather than own. Emerging forces from the bottom up. Cost reduction. Integrated value chains turning products into platforms. 

 

2. Peers are paramount

Collaborative economy hinges on the reputation and trust built between a set of peers. User-generated reputation which quantifie trust based on interactions within the community.

 

3. The elders get Fidgety

No more under the radar.  If the most recent surveys of cities prevail, the cities that first embrace change and create transit and income generation options will win favor with a growing breed of urban dwellers. Mexico is among them. 


4. Ecosystems are growing dense and diverse

As specific models and platforms gain market momentum, an entire ecosystem of commerce emerges. Secondary offerings validating the success of early brands.


5. Maturing brings power and responsibility

As the collaborative economy gains steam, it’s also gaining power, which can be measured in several ways: cultural capital, financial capital, and marketplace momentum


While the collaborative economy ventures have not yet hit their prime, they are clearly on their way. Whole new brands, teams, marketplace dynamics, investment in platforms, behaviors, and policies are evidence of the power in these models. With a bit more time, we’ll see the collaborative economy mature past that awkward, in-between stage into a full-fledged, trusted, and increasingly meaningful, global economic force.
