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

When I read this in the article, I'm wondering....

Every job to be done requires a role, and every role requires a set of responsibilities. While this provides helpful transparency, it takes time and discussion. More importantly, we found that the act of codifying responsibilities in explicit detail hindered a proactive attitude and sense of communal ownership.

I am wondering if they were practicing pure Holacracy. You don't have to provide a set of accountabilities or to code responsibilities in explicit detail. You code what is necessary only when you sense a tension. No overdesign in Holacracy if you use it properly, which is my 7+ years of experience in practicing it everyday in iGi Partners.
