There is a lot said about culture, and many culture assessment tools and improvement approaches available. We have experienced how many organisations identify the need and then execute on some form of culture “improvement” intervention, however, most fail or only work for a short period of time.
Perhaps the reason why these initiatives fail is that culture doesn’t eat strategy for breakfast.
Culture does not exist in isolation and, we believe it is fundamentally an output or glue at the heart of ensuring that the elements of the organisations Business Value Chain i.e., the Strategic Intent, the Business and Operating Model, and Values are aligned.
Culture initiatives fail because they don’t consider all the elements that need to be aligned to enable business success, which then ultimately impacts on culture. The Ovations Integrated Culture Framework depicts how the various components are interrelated and provides a basis for reviewing the Business Value Chain and determining the Organisations culture.
