There are numerous different types of management style and over the years there have been hundreds (if not thousands) of books written about them, with each one usually claiming to be the best.
Many of these management styles result in an increase in bureaucracy as a unintended consequence. A holacracy is a way of dividing your team into separate units that are self-organising as autonomous units but also depend on the rest of the organisation too.
In this kind of hierarchy your staff will be assigned roles rather than given job titles. This means that instead of focusing on their rank, people will be more inclined to focus on the product instead.
Today’s infographic has a lot more information about holacracy and how it is possible to put one into practice in reality.
