Here’s a question for anyone involved in any sort of activity that is trying to change the culture of an organisation.
Do you actually understand what contributes to the existing culture? If the people who’s culture you are trying to change don’t know why they themselves do certain things in the first place, how are you going to convince them to do something different? Will the dazzling Vision, route-map and mile-stones help them to overcome the deeply embedded fear of being sprayed with cold water?
Until you’ve understood the deep reasons behind ‘that’s the way we’ve always done it around here’ not much is going to change, even if you replace the old Apes with new ones…– Chris Bolton @whatsthepont
