Topic:

“Social Technology”: The new organisational structures of Holacracy and Dual Organisation: what are they and how might they work in practice?

Tonight we will provide an overview of (and an opportunity to discuss) both of these new organisational structure trends, what “Circles” are, and how they help organisations be more agile and responsive. We will then hear a case study from Knowledge Management and Learning & Development Specialist Alexandra Lederer who has implemented her own form of Circles to engage her organisation in building capability and a culture for future success in this new world of learning.

Some definitions:

Holacracy:

“Holacracy is a complete, packaged system for self-management in organizations. Holacracy replaces the traditional management hierarchy with a new peer-to-peer “operating system” that increases transparency, accountability, and organizational agility.  Through a transparent rule set and a tested meeting process, Holacracy allows businesses to distribute authority, empowering all employees to take a leadership role and make meaningful decisions.”

Dual Organisation:

In his latest book, Dr. (John) Kotter explains how traditional organizational hierarchies evolved to meet the daily demands of running an enterprise. For most companies, the hierarchy is the singular operating system at the heart of the firm. But the reality is, this system simply is not built for an environment where change has become the norm. Kotter advocates a new system—a second, more agile, network-like structure that operates in concert with the hierarchy to create what he calls a “dual operating system”—one that allows companies to capitalize on rapid-fire strategic challenges and still make their numbers.
