Holacracy and Social Sutainability Research - Request for Participation


My team is studying a Masters program in Strategic Leadership Towards Sustainability at the Blekinge Institute of Technology in Karlskrona, Sweden. Our area of research is centered on How characteristics of the Holacratic Organizational Structure contribute to Social Sustainability.

The rich knowledge and experience in the Holacracy Community of Practice is something we would love to tap into, so that we can hear from the people on the leading edge of organizational change. 

Why participating may be beneficial for you:

  • To help organizations using Holacracy identify the gaps between the perceived and actual impacts of Holacracy on employees
  • To better understand the human-side of Holacracy
  • Provide Holacracy coaches and practitioners real-world data for the implementation and ‘selling’ of Holacracy.


Below you will find the link to our questionnaire. We are requesting all responses to be completed by April 5, 2016. Upon completion of the questionnaire (approximately 15 minutes for certified practitioners and 7 minutes for employees), opportunities to be interviewed will be available for anyone who would like to further discuss Holacracy.

For your participation, you will be given access to all our findings (a copy of our thesis and aggregated data) and will be a part of contributing to a deeper understanding of the innovative organizational tool that is Holacracy.

Please proceed to the questionnaire HERE

To make this study most effective, ideally the questionnaire will reach a large sample of Holacracy users. Please circulate the link to this questionnaire within your company. We have designed the employee survey (same link) to be shorter and very straightforward.

I am happy to chat more about our research or answer any questions you might have.

Kind Regards,
