Reforming Cultures – next edition of Emergence (quaterly journal of Business Agility)
Culture eats strategy for breakfast. You’re probably already familiar with Peter Drucker’s famous observation on 20th Century workplace culture. In other words, reform your organizational culture and the rest will follow. Reforming Culture is the theme of the next edition of the Journal of Business Agility (published during the International Week of Happiness at Work).
Reforming Cultures is a vital topic, because research has shown that companies with a strong and positive culture did better during the Covid-29 crisis. Still many leaders and managers don’t pay enough attention to their culture because they think it is to complicated to steer in the right way . In this issue of Emergence we want to prove to you that it can be done. That culture is not a stiff and static given, but that it moves with your people and behaviors. We will show you the importance of getting your culture right, but also how to truly understand your current culture, and what to do if you want to change.
