Medium, which started out as a company run as a holocracy, is moving on from that model. The reasoning is illustrative. "So we’re off Holacracy. Not because it didn’t work, or because it’s 'wacky' or 'fringe.' We are a little wacky and fringe, and we’re okay with that. We are moving beyond it because we as a company have change.... Beyond that, the system had begun to exert a small but persistent tax on both our effectiveness, and our sense of connection to each other." Governance is hard, which is why so many management gurus have so many quick-fix solutions.
