Sounds familiar?

If you are asking yourself any of these questions, then QuayFive may be able to help you see and tackle the challenge in a different way.

“It’s very clear who we are and how we should work but it doesn’t seem to operate like that in reality”

“We spend ages on change management but then we need to reorganise yet again 6 months later”

“Employee surveys show pride scores are up, but our productivity just seems down, and I don’t know what to do about it”

“You can’t make the organisation use the values; you just have to hope it will”

“People don’t need all this culture focus, they just need to know what to do”

“Social media, different cultures, 5 generations in the workforce, data overload; it’s just adding complexity. I see diversity as a headache, not an opportunity”

What are organisational dynamics? ⌄


These are the micro-elements that compound to form the unique culture of any organisation. They include leadership style, values, diversity, behaviours, habits, ambitions, decision making, networks, perceptions, history, policies, symbols to name a few. They are both the formal aspects that lay out what is expected, and the informal aspects, individually and collectively, that are driven by how people get stuff done day in day out from what they observe. Their unique blend in your organisation drives your distinct culture, and thereby the delivery of your strategy, whether positively or negatively.
