I sometimes get asked if Holacracy is a silver bullet, or sometimes even accused that I'm pitching Holacracy as if it's a silver bullet. And I've been around long enough and exposed to different practices over the years to know that it's not. In fact, of course no such thing exists. There are no silver bullets to business problems, especially complex business problems that we're facing today.

So what about Holacracy, what makes it appear like it's a silver bullet? It's comprehensive, no doubt. It addresses all the fundamentals, in fact I say oftentimes that it honors the fundamentals of what it is to be in business, to be in an organization. It honors things relating to funding and finance and operations and human resources and decision-making and authority and power and structure and legal constructions of an organization. So it is comprehensive, and that kind of gives folks a sense that maybe it's "the answer" to all of our problems. It's not. It's simply a tool that gives you better ways to address your organizational problems. A better way to process your organizational tensions, in a healthier, more organic, more systemic, more adaptive way. So you still have to do the work, you still have to wrestle with your opportunities. You still have to figure out what's important for this business now. Holacracy just gives you a toolset to do that, that is scalable, sustainable, organic, and honors the fundamentals, what it is to be in business in the first place
