When the organisational dynamics mean your culture is not aligned with where your business needs it to be, the symptoms may not easily reveal the real cause and the "quick fixes" don't work. Each organisation has its own unique dynamics that create the culture today, and you have to understand them to be able to improve
How we ensure we focus on the real issues
- Understand from you what you need to achieve in terms of purpose and strategy and therefore what you expect from your organisational culture
- Listen hard to internal and external stakeholders to understand where the differences are between what you formally expect and what is informally taking place, how the internal political factors inside your organisation drive particular behaviours
- Diagnose those aspects of the organisational dynamics that thereby provide risk or opportunity and need adjusting to help you deliver the culture
- Use sophisticated analytics (both quantitative and qualitative) to secure deep insights into the dynamics of people and organisations and the critical risks in the context of your organisation
We don't leap into action - we only start developing practical strategies with you once we're clear we understand the organisational culture and its dynamics that drive it today.
