Holacracy Community of Practice Archive, 2015-2019 Community Holacracy Web Site

Hi Samantha,
On my side, I use Holacracy for this step like a mapping tool. I set the initial structure by modeling on Glassfrog the effective structure of the company from what people are doing concretely day by day on the ground.

Actually, people describe very easily how the work is done.

I start usually by the general circle. After that, I hold the first governance meeting, so structure may start to evolve from the real tensions sensed by the role holders through the governance process. If needed, roles of the general  Circle may become sub-circles through a organic differentiation emerging need.
