5 Reasons Why Holacracy is Failing. Is it Time to Say Goodbye to Holacracy (and Zappos)?

Download to read offline

Holacracy is a self-management principle founded on interconnectedness. The term was first coined in 2007 by Brian Roberts but the idea has been around for centuries.

It's only been a couple of years since Zappos adopted Holacracy. But it seems that everyone is eager to learn about the results of Hsieh's experiment. Latest speculations (mostly from the press) suggest that Holacracy is failing.

Is it?

Or maybe it only needs more time to prove its worth?

In this Slideshare story deck, we present 5 main reasons why many experts think that Holacracy is failing. And of course to make it a fair fight, we are also proud to show one big reason why we need to give Holacracy more time.

Hope you'll find this information useful!
