Culture Change: a special field of organisational development
The importance of culture
CORPORATE CULTURE is a collective term for the various characteristics of an organisation which create a specific environment within that organisation. There are various aspects of organisational culture from how people treat each other, or what values and processes they work along, to what motivational tools they use, how they use power, and so forth.
An enterprise can only achieve long term greatness and success if the work place atmosphere and the corporate culture can help colleagues achieve to their fullest potential.
Why culture change can be important
Organisations should react to their changing environment with changing forms of behaviour. In order to achieve a change in corporate behaviour you need to first change the governing values, beliefs, standards and views – in one word: corporate culture. It is this shift our culture change projects help happen.
The culture change process
Based on decades of experience, Concordia believes that successful culture change is fundamentally contingent on the dedication of the management, on involving colleagues and mobilising them throughout the process, on receiving professional supports and on working consistently and persistently.
Expected results of culture change
A strong culture created through the steps detailed above will strengthen values that are in alignment with the mission, will align beliefs, views and approaches. Once these are united, goals and efforts will also be aligned, and synergies formed.
Uniform management principles and leadership styles, governed by live values, will make both leaders and their teams work more efficiently. A corporate culture with attractive values creates a positive and energetic atmosphere that attracts and retains talented people.
