The costs of management are a significant factor in the search for better organizational designs and management structures. Holacracy One started in 2007. Ten years later is following the 500+ companies that have implemented Holacracy to pick up on the legal and people side needed to balance the structural implementation of Holacracy. Tom Thomison, a co-founder of Holacracy One, and Dawna talk about:

  • The value of a distributed authority system,
  • What Holacracy is and is not,
  • The value of embedding an entrepreneurial stance to doing the work,
  • Is profit a purpose or a measure?
  • What does purpose of business mean and how does it replace Mission, Vision and other traditional elements,
  • The pivotal question for moving from a traditional model to a self-managing system,
  • The need to re-envision a world without employees
  • The importance of Like-purpose (not like-minded) diversity.
