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

Hi Jalmari, great question. might be the million dollar question...

so here are my 2cts:

The level of TRUST between colleagues in the organization is the biggest differentiator in speed of implementation. I trumps size and history of the organization.

what I mean is: if the trust between employees is high the implementation of holacracy is much easier then in the situation where there is a low level of trust between employees. 

With very high level of trust between employees I have experienced 10-50 people companies get to a basic comfort level with holacracy in about 2+ months. larger companies and lower levels of trust can easily get you to 6-12 month range.
