Aligning Organizational Strategy and Culture
“Culture eats strategy for breakfast” – Peter M. Drucker
The new world of work means creating a learning, adaptive, flexible organization. An organization where people are fully engaged, using all of their skills and talents, and where they constantly develop new ones. Getting there is hard work. It’s a significant cultural shift for many organizations. Is your organizational culture aligned with strategy and focused on improving people? Our consultants will help you understand where your organization stands, and how that compares to where it says it needs to be, with a prescription for leadership actions that bring culture and strategy into alignment.
“System fails when people with ability don’t have authority and people with authority don’t have ability.” ― Amit Kalantri
What systems does your organization have in place to grow people in support of your organizational purpose? How mature and robust are those systems and processes? Our Human Capital Management assessment looks at processes and practices in four key areas: Developing People, Building Effective Teams, Motivating and Managing Performance, and Shaping the Workforce. These threads are intertwined and interdependent, and are the basis for creating a resilient, agile, adaptable, learning organization.
