The Holacracy kick-off took place on a Monday, on June 29th, 2020. On that day, the first roles were designed based on activities, as done daily. But first, those who have the highest decision-making power at that time sign the Holacracy Constitution. We call those who sign the constitution the Ratifiers.
The Holacracy constitution contains all the rules with which the organization can practice Holacracy. To sign these rules is a signal to everyone in the organization. It shows that from that moment on:
-the rules of the game are the boss,
– and the decision-making authority is distributed to roles instead of people.
