Making Culture Work, Marc Stigter PhD (Forthcoming, 2019)

Unleash transformation through renewal of your corporate blueprint!

Changing an organisation’s cultural blueprint is one of the most difficult leadership challenges. That’s because an organisation’s culture comprises an interlocking set of values, behaviours, attitudes, beliefs, assumptions, norms, customs, and all other products of human work and thought. 

These elements fit together as a mutually reinforcing system and combine to prevent any attempt to change it. That’s why most cultural-change initiatives accomplish little, at best. Single-fix changes, such as the introduction of a new strategy, or a new organisational structure, or any new initiative or process may appear to make progress for a while, but eventually the interlocking elements of the organizational culture take over and the change is inexorably drawn back into the existing organisational culture.

There is a proliferation of methodologies measuring organisational culture highlighting the importance of cultural change. But most executives already understand that culture is critically important to their business success. Recent research indicates that 96% of executives feel that their organisation is in need of a major cultural overhaul. Not surprisingly, there is an increasing call for methodologies that offer clear and practical solutions. Methodologies that don’t merely measure culture but that enable cultural change. 

This book helps you change the cultural blueprint of your organisation enabling enduring transformation.
