There has been a lot of media and buzz around Zappos most recent innovative move regarding culture- holacracy.
What is a holacracy and how can it be used to increase innovation, collaboration and employee engagement?
The definition of holacracy is: Holacracy is a comprehensive practice for structuring, governing, and running an organization. It replaces today's top-down predict-and-control paradigm with a new way of achieving control by distributing power. It is a new “operating system” that instills rapid evolution in the core processes of an organization.
It is a model for 'shared leadership' and it requires individuals who are evolved to an integration of both ego and purpose. There has been many bloggers and writers who have negative comments about the holacracy model and who claim that hierarchy is needed in order for people to function within in an organization.
