Conventional wisdom suggests that culture follows strategy. The dilemma: in a world where strategy is persistently under attack "the plan" has to be constantly revisited. The new dictum: culture enables strategy. What endures, what provides the platform for growth, what shapes future performance, what enables different strategic scenarios to unfold, is culture.
The challenge, of course, is not merely to possess a strong culture but to build a business environment that shapes how people act and, at the same time, supports emerging strategic scenarios. In a fluid and rapidly-changing business environment both clarity and flexibility are demanded.
The online StrAgility Culture Assessment explores culture in your organisation in terms of both strength (leadership, communication and teamwork) and agility (the customer's voice, talent management, and challenge the status quo) as a means to: 1) assess today's culture; 2) enter into the culture conversation with a view to take culture to the next level; 3) assess "culture fit" when bringing someone new onto the team.
