Our latest governance meeting minutes are online. Changes include new supporting roles (Proofreader, Sales Intelligence, Czech Translator) and a separation of the previous “Idea Sharing” role into Publications and Events.
To understand better what roles mean and how they evolve, see our blogpost Clarifying roles and accountabilities in Holacracy. And if you are inspired by any of what you see, please consider joining us!
A team relies on the effectiveness and productivity of its individual members. That is why we have taken up a new Personal Productivity offering into our service offerings. We offer personal training and coaching for effectiveness, productivity and personal organisation.
With the individuals well-organised, the team can develop its full capacity.
And with a well-organised team, personal productivity actually makes sense.
In our company, we use Holacracy as our Operating Model: it allows us to develop great clarity on what we actually do (what our work processes are) and who does what (who is responsible for taking a particular action).
The functions and accountabilities are captured in Roles, and are being refined in Governance Meetings. You can study all of our company’s roles in our public governance records and there is a history of Governance and Tactical Meeting minutes available too.
(Note: since publishing this article, we have restructured the company, making most links in the following paragraphs not functional anymore.)
If you look at this morning’s governance meeting, you can see the subtleties of governance in Holacracy. For example
- we noticed that nobody was actually responsible for maintaining lists of participants of our events. We captured this as a new accountability for our Events Outreach Role. Having responsibilities in Sales and Marketing and Idea Sharing, I can relax now, knowing that this is being taken care of by Tanja in her Events Outreach role.
The changes made to the Collaboration Logistics and Sales Operations roles also reflect these small, better understandings of the business functions. (See the minutes to see the changes highlighted.)
