Publisher's Summary

Holacracy distributes authority and decision making throughout an organization and defines people not by hierarchy and titles but by roles. Holacracy creates organizations that are fast and agile and that succeed by pursuing their purpose, free from the tyranny of top-down planning that's instantly out of date.
This isn't anarchy - it's quite the opposite. When you start to follow Holacracy, you learn to create new structures and ways of making decisions that empower the people who know the most about the work your company does: your frontline colleagues. Some of the many champions of Holacracy include Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com (and author of the number one New York Times best seller Delivering Happiness); Evan Williams (cofounder of Blogger, Twitter, and Medium); and David Allen.

Informative boredom

I so looked forward to an interesting read. I enjoyed the concept and am intrigued by the possibilities. My displeasure came not from the new-wave perspective on self-organization, that was enlightening, but from the verbose delivery of the author. I agree with other reviewers in this forum: less would certainly be more as to the too-many words used. That alone made this book difficult to get through. That aside, the construct presented could certainly work if given the chance. Thanks to the author for sharing this ground breaking system.
