Doctoral Research on Well-being of Workers in a Holacracy vs. Matrix

I would like to thank the administrators of HolacracyOne who have given me permission to post the following:

My name is Ben Olmos. I am a doctoral student at Northcentral University. I am conducting a research study of workers in two different types of job designs. The purpose of my study is to research worker well-being by surveying individuals currently working in a matrix or holacracy. I am seeking 92 participants for this study with current or recent experience working in a cross-functional teams identified as either a matrix or holacracy. Participants will need to be over the age of 18, fluent in English, and have the ability to complete an online survey. Your completion of the survey serves as your voluntary agreement to participate in this research project and your certification that you are 18 or older.

Questions related to the purpose or procedures of this research study should be directed to Ben Olmos at B.Olmos2080@email.ncu.edu or by phone at 404-444-3928. My dissertation chair’s name is Stephen Verrill. He works at Northcentral University and is supervising me on the research. You can contact him at: sverrill@ncu.edu or 580-230-8981.

Those who wish to voluntarily participate may do so anonymously using the following survey link: https://goo.gl/forms/kINp42jlD3uefAiL2.

Hi Ben,

 

This question is written twice I think “To what extent do you receive help and support from others when you need it?”.

 

Kind regards,

This one also: “In general, to what extent do you feel excited and interested in things?”

Ben,  hello!  Just a gentle reminder that "Holacracy" is a registered trademark - and as such should be represented as:  "Holacracy" (and not the lower case "h").  Thanks!

Kallie, thank you very much. I will be sure as I work to finalize my dissertation and publish my work I make this correction to ensure Holacracy is accurately represented. Thank you for taking the time to provide the feedback.
