Embedding & Maintaining Culture
It has been said that when an individual enters a group, the group enters them. The culture of any organisation, although seemingly intangible, instructs those who are part of it on ‘how we do things around here’. It influences how, when and indeed what work gets done. Determines who fits in and is aligned with the business and equally who doesn’t and shapes the overall personality of the whole group.
Created by both the systems and processes an organisation uses, and the social dynamics between individuals and sub-groups, culture cannot be merely defined and acted out. During times of change in a business; for example, mergers, periods of growth and other strategic events, culture often becomes a focus of attention.
