The Revolutionary New Management System that Abolishes Hierarchy
By Brian J. Robertson

Henry Holt & Co. (2015)

Championed by Zappos’ Tony Hsieh, Twitter cofounder Evan Williams, and Getting Things Done author David Allen, Holacracy is a revolutionary management system that redefines management and turns everyone into a leader. This isn’t anarchy–it’s quite the opposite. Creator Brian Robertson lays out the key elements of Holacracy in this definitive book. Through detailed examples and step-by-step guides, he shows how it creates organizations that are fast, agile, and that succeed by pursuing their purpose, not following an artificial plan.

Ellen was simply amazing. Without her significant effort and skill, my book might never have seen the light of day. She took a mess of blog posts and interviews, structured them into a coherent narrative, and guided me through the entire creative process. Her market-driven approach really appealed to me and kept the book focused on its target reader, and my publisher loved her work.

“[An] illuminating business manual . . .

“. . .  leads readers through the process of redistributing authority and improving decision-making, which involves shifting from personal leadership to constitutionally-derived power. Backed up by contributions from Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh and other business luminaries, this is a practical, step-by-step guide to putting in place a new, unfamiliar structure, one where the executive retains autonomy and individual authority while allowing others to lead highly structured meetings and systematic decision-making.”

—Publishers Weekly

“Brian’s message and the Holacracy model rocked my world.”

—David Allen, author of Getting Things Done
