At Walking the Talk, we are constantly being asked the question how do you measure culture? In response to this need, Walking the Talk are pleased to host a Webinar on the topic of Culture Assessment on Thursday, December 6th at GMT 12:00/ CET 13:00.
When helping businesses develop healthy, fit-for-purpose cultures, I often get asked whether the organisation should develop a “top-down” global culture plan or let local entities develop their own plans. My answer? It depends.
Building a culture plan sits at the core of how you transform organisational cultures. Without a plan, it’s like shooting in the dark: you sort of know where you want to go, but you have no idea how to get there. Most organisations are familiar with building annual plans for infrastructure, IT, people, strategy and operations. However, when it comes to culture, few businesses are used to develop effective plans.
