You’ve probably heard the old saying “Culture eats Strategy for Breakfast!” The meaning of course being we may decide on anything but nothing really changes if our culture denies our decisions. So what to do?
Can we Hack our Corporate Culture?
Another expression comes to my mind: “It’s in the walls” The mening beeing it’s so deep in our culture it’s almost like our rooms and office construction picked up our routines.
So – if our organizational culture holds this power on us – can we do anything about it? Or are we forever doomed to remain here, fading into dust? Or are there actions we can start to gradually poke this giant ship on the right course? In short, and again: Can we hack our Corporate Culture?
IF we could, let’s list what’s needed:
An updated and corrected compass
A new map and sea card
New routines for work onboard this ship
New instructions for our captain, crew and paying visitors
We need to change this as we are moving, still under sail. While securing the rails of the tracks while cho0-chooing our train.
Well, do you think this’ll work? Join me in trying! We’ll be at the Webcoast #unconference March 14-16 in Goteborg, Sweden. Although a tough quest – We’ll go for it in a Four Hour Workshop on March 14. Our fellow participants will bring their experiences, knowledge and skills. I’ll do the same and bring a few tools as well:
Corporate Culture (video)
The Clear/Verbalized model
The VBOR as below
Anchor and Buoy model for needs and behavior
Picture: The VBOR Model
We’ll bring it all together in a video on the evening of the event.
Feel free to supply us with anything likely to work!
Thanks! … and Welcome!
