Implementing Holacracy with Dennis Wittrock

Season 2, Ep. 47

Dennis Wittrock of shares a case study of Hypoport, a fintech company that opted to implement Holacracy. Despite the assumption that Holacracy is flat and unstructured it is the opposite. Dennis walks us through the process of moving from deciding on self-management to implementing it in a company with many moving parts, growing through acquisition and diverging cultures. What each self-managed governance model brings is an explicit structure that enables stronger peer-to-peer relationships. Included in Holacracy and Sociocracy 3.0 is using tensions as a means to work with conflicting zones.
