“Culture eats strategy for breakfast”. Why is it so? Everybody says that culture is important and that it needs to be improved. But a decision by the management alone and the announcement at the summer or Christmas party do not bring much. The organisational culture is based on people’s values & their behaviour. How can it be quantified in order to really know where the organisation stands on this? How to evolve it and follow up the journey based on real facts?
In this talk we will see how to identify an agile culture based on the competing values framework and how an organisational culture transformation can be measured and followed up in smaller steps.
