How does a company remain successful – even when the team grows to over ten employees? In design and IT agencies, it is in most cases impossible to structure a team hierarchically. So what if all project tasks and business activities were to be shared by everyone – from the boss to employees?
“Holacracy” is a management system that gives employees more responsibility and removes rigid structures within the company. It promises a wealth of freedom, where roles are distributed and established skills transferred. The objective is to cut costs and develop an efficient approach for a future corporate structure. In short, “Holacracy” is about focusing more on your specific capabilities.
In his talk, service designer Caspar Siebel discusses his personal experience after 9 months of using “Holacracy” at Berlin-based agency “Service Innovation Labs” and shares his sketchnotes with participants. What are the advantages and disadvantages of “Holacracy”, and what risks do you need to be aware of once you’ve opted for this corporate structure?
Participants will be given a fascinating insight into a modern management system, perfectly adapted to our times to achieve greater decision-making freedom and prevent job dissatisfaction. Because one thing is certain: With a certain degree of self-motivation, “Holacracy” guarantees greater personal fulfilment, and thereby greater job satisfaction!
