Evolving Culture to Drive Impact
With disruptive, fast-paced change, organizations are faced with the need to constantly evolve and remain agile, resilient and highly productive. Evolving organizational strategy to remain relevant and competitive can be complex.
However, we have heard it many times: “Culture eats strategy for breakfast!” The “How we do things”, our Culture, can either be a powerful success driver or an insurmountable obstacle. Aligning the levers that impact organizational culture, such as organizational structure, systems, leadership, rewards and performance management, to our strategy is the way we unleash the power of Culture.
