Taking Holacracy Governance to the Next Level

Organisations that adopt Holacracy often find it鈥檚 a big upgrade to their decision-making processes. But implementing Governance meetings is only the beginning of your self-management evolution.

Dogmatists may staunchly defend the completeness of the Holacracy Constitution, but I believe on drawing from everything available to craft the right system for your unique organisation. Even if you鈥檙e not sold on Holacracy, there are tools in it that can be super useful for any team. One of these elements is Integrative Decision-Making.

Worker Participation in Health & Safety

New Zealand recently tightened up health and safety laws. Now businesses must have practices that give their workers opportunities to participate, on an ongoing basis, in improving health and safety.

The New Zealand Government says:

鈥淲hen you engage workers in work health and safety everyone benefits. Your business is a healthier and safer place for everyone, and performance and productivity increase. Stronger worker engagement and participation leads to healthier and safer workplaces.鈥

How the National Assembly for Wales Used Loomio for Online Collaboration

Guest post by Kevin Davies, Senior Public Engagement Manager, National Assembly for Wales


The Welsh Government鈥檚 mission is to 鈥渉elp improve the lives of people in Wales and make our nation a better place in which to live and work鈥.聽One of the ways the National Assembly for Wales looks at how effectively the Welsh Government is doing its job is through committees.

It鈥檚 important that the National Assembly hears from a wide range of people affected by the decisions the Welsh Government makes. Traditional approaches tend to encourage a response from a select few who are already very well engaged with the political process. In order to engage with more diverse audiences, different approaches are needed.
