CULTURE CHANGE (What Is It?)
Organizational culture evolves continuously from interactions with employees, customers, suppliers, and the wider community. It is the DNA of the organization, the way things are done, and it influences every action and interaction. While some of these influences act as a force for good, others can result in the development of practices which act negatively on the image, ethos, and profitability of the organization. The need for culture change may become apparent from certain trigger signals but it also may be required following a merger or acquisition or a change of leadership.
Why does one company succeed while another fails? What made one business survive the recession while others went under? Dress it up in any way you like but the answer boils down to organizational culture.
