Talk on "Holacracy" - an innovative self-management practice for organizations

The Swisscom Digital Lab is happy to welcome Jonas Vonlanthen from Liip for this new topic: " How to operate a self-organised company " In society, authoritarian managers are not required to ensure order. And - in most cases - society works well as long as there are clear and shared operating rules. We cannot however yet make the same observation in the business world, where hierarchy and command-and-control remains the norm. Power holders cannot let go, and that is understandable: they have never been taught otherwise. But this is changing; welcome to 21st century management, where new tools are emerging to operate companies. Distributed governance, shared authority, consent decision-making, organization in roles and circles... these are some of the mechanisms of self-managed companies. Let’s reflect on the evolution of organizations and discover in a real and local example how such a “teal” organization works. Jonas Vonlanthen is a pioneer in agile management and self-organisation in Switzerland. As Partner at Liip, he founded the Lausanne office in 2011 and lead the development of the web and mobile agency in the Romandy market. Since 2015, he focuses on the organisation’s evolution from a hierarchical to a self-managed governance system. https://www.linkedin.com/in/vonlanthen/ https://www.liip.ch/fr SPECIAL: For this event, we will test our new virtual seat, at distance.
