Traditional ways of structuring and controlling an organization tend to stifle the very agility and creativity needed for entrepreneurial innovation to flourish. In today's world of rapid change and dynamic complexity, top-down predict-and-control management is quickly becoming obsolete ��" budding organizations wither and die if they can't innovate at internet speed. At the same time, entrepreneurs must lay down tracks to grow and stabilize a business larger than themselves, without losing the entrepreneurial innovation and spirit that got them that far. This workshop introduces Holacracy™, a new operating system for rapid, dynamic organizational structure and management, highlighted by The Wall Street Journal and other notable sources as an innovative new practice. Join us for a whirlwind tour led by the award-winning entrepreneur that pioneered the method, and leave with a new vision for how to build an organization that builds itself.

Learn how Holacracy™ improves:
• Agility: Go beyond managing change; make it a core capacity
• Alignment: Increase alignment, without sacrificing adaptability
Engagement: Give everyone a voice, without getting stuck in consensus
• Results: Continuously increase clarity, expose waste, and harness learning

Brian Robertson is an experienced entrepreneur, CEO, and organizational pioneer. He is most well-known for his work developing Holacracy™, an organizational operating system that concretely embodies the new capacities called for by many organizational thought-leaders today. Mr. Robertson's initial work with Holacracy™ took place at an award-winning fast-growth software company he founded and led for seven years. The system he initially developed there has continued to evolve and spread in the years since under the stewardship of HolacracyOne, an organization Mr. Robertson co-founded to further develop the method and bring it to the world. He currently works with HolacracyOne to help consultants and change agents bring its evolutionary approach to organizations across the globe.
