Flat Department; Being More Productive with No Managers

At Hunter Industries, the software development department has a flat structure with management H.O.As (Homeowners Associations) these groups exist to ensure an experimentation loop on each distinct process in the department allowing the team to evolve quickly and effectively.
This followed many experiments of introducing decentralized management into the team. We were able to over deliver with our management Kanban process, and retrospected away from it. We found new ways of managing the work to support the construct of self-organizing teams. In this environment of experimentation, the department is able to regularly improve on each of its processes without having to be designed by a single element of a hierarchy.
