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

To define them in "holacratic" terms they could be referred to as alternative participatory meeting structures to be practiced in groups  that are usually larger than your average circle size, with the purpose of finding ideas or solving big challenges together. 

They could be used in holacracy trainings (and I would say some already are), so  when some trainer holds a PCT they could use some of them to engage people in reflections, comments and FAQ

They could be used before the adoptions, inside a target company,  as an integration to old fashioned structures,  to awaken the sense of responsibility and authority, the personal voice that everyone needs to bring  to an holacracy implementation, enabling some mindshift at the personal level. Something that prepares the table for what comes next.
