Taking Holacracy Governance to the Next Level

Taking Holacracy Governance to the Next Level | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Organisations that adopt Holacracy often find it’s a big upgrade to their decision-making processes. But implementing Governance meetings is only the beginning of your self-management evolution.

The Next Stage of Organizational Evolution

The Next Stage of Organizational Evolution | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We are witnessing an evolutionary step change in how we operate and organize: a shift from linear, mechanistic, control-based modes of operating toward living, emergent, self-organizing, life-affirming organizations. This shift is the greatest challenge facing leaders, managers and change agents today, according to Peter Senge; a shift in human consciousness, according to Ken Wilber.

The holes in holacracy

The holes in holacracy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
