Think about this. Strategy is a product of your view of the future. Culture, on the other hand, is essentially the product of your history. It's very easy for the two to be out of sync. The challenge is to shape the corporate culture such that it aligns with and supports your plan for tomorrow.
Our Culture Architecting Sessions Help Executives:
Articulate major strategic initiatives
Identify defining characteristics of the current culture
Address the cultural elements that need to stay, go, and be newly established
Prioritize the mission-critical culture traits to be linked to strategy execution
Visualize the desired end-state: what people should say, think, and do dofferently
Develop a plan for operationalizing the culture-shaping process
Identify who needs to do what, by when, to shape a culture that can deliver on the strategy
In these highly interactive sessions, the executive team crafts a practical, tangible plan for linking culture to strategy. This serves as the master blueprint for shaping corporate culture at all levels of the organization.
