Will Culture Eat Performance Improvement for Breakfast? How to Measure and Ma

There is an endless history of of well-designed performance improvement and change processes that failed because they did not really take into account the full impact of something as intangible and fuzzy as corporate culture. What is needed is a pragmatic tool that makes it possible to identify and understand how an organization’s corporate culture is experienced today, what kind of culture is hoped for, and how this relates to what employees regard as their personal values set. This session will illustrate one proven approach to tackle this task using the Corporate Values Assessment by Richard Barrett. Examples will illustrate how measuring and building corporate culture was approached in national and multinational organizations, creating a sound basis for effective performance improvement processes.
