“Holacracy includes the following elements: • a constitution, which sets out the “rules of the game” and redistributes authority • a new way to structure an organization and define people’s roles and spheres of authority within it • a unique decision-making process for updating those roles and authorities • a meeting process for keeping teams in sync and getting work done together”
Brian J. Robertson, Holacracy: The New Management System for a Rapidly Changing World

“There is no freedom without discipline, no vision without a form”
Brian J. Robertson, Holacracy: The Revolutionary Management System that Abolishes Hierarchy

“Consensus didn’t accomplish that. In fact, all it resulted in was long painful meetings where we would try to force everyone to see things the same way. That isn’t helpful or healthy, and it only gets worse as an organization grows.”
Brian J. Robertson, Holacracy: The New Management System for a Rapidly Changing World
