At AMIA, we do business differently. We are moving away from the conventional hierarchy and bureaucratic management structure toward a new and emerging self-management system that distributes authority and empowers all employees to take a leadership role and make meaningful decisions in our organization. This system is called HOLACRACY and is utilized by many of the most innovative leading companies, such as Zappos and Medium. Holacracy replaces the traditional management hierarchy structure with a new peer-to-peer “operating system” that increases transparency, accountability, and organizational agility. Our organizational structure enables employees to act more like entrepreneurs and self-direct their work instead of reporting to a manager who tells them what to do. The basic goal with this structure is to allow for distributed decision-making while giving everyone the opportunity to work on what they do best.
