Ewa,

[@mention:486850353354280140] has provided a workshop: The Government as a speedboot.

In this workshop people from the City of Amsterdam and people from the City of Venlo shared their Holacracy practices.

hi Ewa, next to the workshop 'the municipality as a speedboat' that Marco and I hosted, as Tom mentioned, I am currently involved in a holacracy implementation in a waterboard (Dutch: waterschap), which is very similar organized as a municipality, including a 'water-major' and an elected 'water-council'

Tom, Jasper, thank you for quick responses.

Do I understand correctly that the City of Amsterdam and the City of Venlo are already working on the basis of Holacracy or they implemented some parts?

Waterboard is same as water supply?

Yo, Ewa!

The Washington Technology department of the US Government is also experimenting with Holacracy. The head of it ( [@mention:450819477778576386] )has a blog where you can check out some stuff.

Hello,

We implemented Holacracy within SIAV (Syndicat Intercommunal d’Assainissement de Valenciennes – Valenciennes Intercommunal Sanitation Syndicate), within public sector, here's some feedback from their collaborators : http://igipartners.com/en/holacracy-public-sector

And here a talk between the ex-Chief Executive and Assistant General Manager : http://igipartners.com/en/conv...witched-holacracy-15

Hope it helps to answer to your question,

Have a nice day,

Yes!

No. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_board_(Netherlands) . Hard to imagine I guess when your own country is not(partly) at or below sea level  :-)
