“In companies that sustain, the company doesn’t have a culture – it is its culture.”
– John O. Burdett, TRANSEARCH Global Advisor on Culture
Culture enables strategy. What endures, what provides the platform for growth, what shapes future performance, what enables different strategic scenarios to unfold, is culture. Our own research – and that of others – suggests that only 20% of organisations manage their culture. Power moves into a vacuum. If you are not managing your culture someone else is! Meanwhile, if you are not measuring culture … you are not managing it!
We measure culture using the TRANSEARCH Orxestra® Methodology.
