CULTURE



Large Call to Action Headline

Culture is the immune system of an organisation - it can be built up or torn down, an organisation is heavily dependent/influenced by it, it can adapt and it will naturally fight the unknown.


It is imperative to understand the current Culture before even thinking about what is wrong with it or why. More than one tool should accomplish this - they should range from internal reflections to objective high-level organisational analysis.


When there is a perceived issue with Culture, the leadership should take the time and effort to correctly diagnose the problem - not assume the solution straight away. When doing this, consider human needs and how these may not be met, and also think of factors that may not obviously link to Culture but could be adversely affecting it (e.g. operating model).


An ideal Culture should align with the Vision of the organisation. Culture is neither for the business or for the people - it is for both. The people make up the business.


Once this is recognised, the Culture will be driven by leaders and built through employees who believe in the business and are enabled through the Culture to achieve its values (and therefore overall Strategy). Culture improves business performance by default, particularly when it is already aligned with Strategy. It is dangerous to take a flippant approach to Culture.


When planning a shift in Culture, it should always be planned and executed like a regular client project would. Using various tools and exercises to do so are strongly advised to achieve a successful shift..

CULTURE TOOLS

It is not practical nor effective to find one tool or method that will suit every business when understanding the current cultural climate. A collection of useful tools should be at hand and used when appropriate. Extraneous variables impact on responses which is why more than one tool/method should be used for data analysis in this step.
