People romanticize startup cultures and their lack of structure, but it creates anxiety and inefficiency, whether we have to build consensus around every decision, or deal with land grabs for power. In contrast, Holacracy creates clarity: who is in charge of what, and who makes each kind of decision - and there is a system for changing that, so it's very flexible at the same time

  • This book reminds me of a book that I must have read 100 times during my quest to become a better poker player.
