Self Organizing Teams Unicorns Or The Real Deal

Self Organizing Teams Unicorns Or The Real Deal

My presentation from Agile in the City conference showing how we used the agile approach to create a self-organising company. Starting with Management 3.0 tools and techniques and coaching people how to be self-organised and self-managed, we created a company without managers which is now based on the circles and roles as seen in Holacracy or Sociocracy 3.0.

Our approach is designed around the ‘6 Es of self-organisation’:

  • enable everyone to improve the system
  • engage people and their interactions
  • encourage a knowledge sharing culture
  • employ for attitude not for skill
  • empower people to create the system
  • ensure happiness at work
