Holocracy, Open-Book Management

Today I decluttered my collection of interesting articles.

There was this one article about holacracy.

I read about this idea some years ago in an interview about Tony Hsieh.

As a software engineer, I oftentimes think about ideas like agility, change and transparency.

Software is connected to business processes.

When a business process changes, we have to be agile enough to adapt the software to the new changes.

So how much do I need to know about the business process and its context?

Is change the default mode of business? Of life?

Which concepts lead to easier handling of change?

This is how I found the concept of open-book management.

The basis of open-book management is that the information received by employees should not only help them do their jobs effectively but help them understand how the company is doing as a whole.

The technique is to give employees all relevant financial information about the company so they can make better decisions as workers.

This sounds very interesting.
