Whether a short- or mid- term project-based strategy, or a long-term multi-year plan initiative, effective strategy implementation is dependent on an organization’s culture.
Intentionally building a strategy without intentionally building a culture, is like getting all the equipment and uniforms for a football game and never investing in football practice for the team. The team will be fly and well-equipped, but they will likely lose the game. Investing in culture matters. And building the culture that aligns with your strategic plans is a game changer!
Through Culture-Informed Strategic Advising we actively and intentionally connect strategy to the culture you’ll need to make it so.
Grounded in the PRISAIC Method below, this service identifies not only the culture needed to carry out the plan but also the cultural conditions that the plan assumes or may overlook. Having an aligned culture means that when things don’t go according to plan, we have built the culture conditions needed to recalibrate in a way that ensures meaningful progress.
