Peter Drucker famously declared “Culture eats Strategy for breakfast”
Who are we to disagree with the father of management?
However, in our view, both are equally important.
A well-conceived strategy is crucial for winning in the marketplace.
A strong organizational culture–one that is coherent and adaptive– amplifies your current strategy, and your ability to respond to changes in the marketplace.
A weak culture–one that is incoherent–hinders both your ability to win and adapt.
We define culture as “The way we do things around here,” and our services provide clients with the expertise to nurture a strong culture for either their existing business, or new entrepreneurial ventures.
Our tools, frameworks and processes are informed by “best practices” in the business and academic literature, and have been specifically developed to enable speedy interventions leading to quick wins for our clients.
