Culture Change

“The attention we pay to corporate culture pays dividends in creating sustainable growth and profit."
- A.J. Schuler

The Business Case

In the past 5-10 years, most companies have created operational efficiency as a means to competitiveness. Now, many companies have come to the realisation that the “efficiency-as-a-means-to-profit” strategy is nearing the end.

The intangible elements – knowledge, people, teams and how they are organised are now considered critical to future success. The old intelligence was what you did; the new intelligence is how you do them.

Your competitive advantage will be achieved through culture. Our research and experience show that to change culture, you have to change the way people think. Only then can you hope to create a culture that aligns with the business strategy to ultimately improve your company’s economic performance.

The Payoff

Culture is described as “the way we do things around here”, including the messages employees receive about what is important and how they are expected to behave. We work with your executive team to define the type of culture required to fulfil your strategic objectives.

The gap between what you said you needed to achieve your strategy and reality becomes obvious. At the end of the workshop, you will have a clear picture of next steps required to create culture change.

Our Approach

Unique to Ignite Performance’ approach to organisational culture change is our belief that your strategy defines the type of culture you require.

  • What’s your current culture?
  • What culture do you need to achieve the corporate strategy?
  • What does it take to change company culture?

Ignite Performance does not prescribe a “one solution fits all” approach to culture change. In this highly interactive workshop, senior leaders will utilise a tried-and -tested process to examine their current corporate culture and determine how this aligns to the company’s strategy and vision.

By analysing your current culture’s strengths and weaknesses, you will be able to identify the cultural qualities that are most important in achieving your business strategy then determine what needs to be done to bridge the gap between the actual and desired culture.

Who Will Benefit

This workshop will benefit anyone whose role it is to foster culture change in order to achieve improved performance that is aligned to the business strategy.
