Curious to learn the fundamentals of Holacracy? This whitepaper provides an overview of Holacracy and presents its core elements.
A MORE ORGANIC STRUCTURE
Holacracy replaces the traditional pyramid-shaped management hierarchy with a structure based on the idea of holarchy (see page 7). A holarchy looks like a series of nested circles. Each circle (i.e. team) is made up of a set of roles, grouped together around a specific function—whether it be a specific project team, a department, a support function, or a business line. Some circles will contain sub-circles, and all are contained within the largest super-circle, usually called the “General Company Circle.”
