Organizational culture is not made with rules, procedures, processes, and systems. It does not come as a result of publishing your mission, vision, and values. It is not a communication problem, either.
The elements of a great organizational culture include
- A clear, compelling, and commonly-understood focus.
- The right people, in the right roles, collaborating with win-win, and generating the right results.
- A method for exposing obstructive personal and organizational beliefs and assumptions. And a method for replacing those with constructive beliefs.
- Practical tools for knowing what could be done and selecting what to do that is in line with the focus and desired results.
While a great organizational culture can happen by chance, you can engineer it in new and existing organizations. You just have to get started.
