fast-track insights into culture
An Introduction to Culture is conducted over a two day period and is aimed at leadership teams. Staff focus groups are held on day 1, with the culture training workshop taking place the day after. The programme includes:
- focus groups to conduct a mini survey of the current culture
- identification of preferred culture
- facilitated workshop to explain culture findings and explore implications
We use focus groups to complete a small scale culture survey to measure and describe the culture. The Organisational Culture Inventory enables us to measure the culture while additional anecdotal information is obtained through facilitated discussion.
By holding four focus groups, differences between sub-groups can be mapped and described.
- gain a better understanding of the current culture
- start to envisage the preferred culture
- identify gaps current /preferred culture gaps
- develop a shared understanding of the implications of these gaps
- plan for success by discovering why so many culture change programmes fail
- outline a change management programme
The results of this culture training are guaranteed to be thought-provoking and will show how a wider culture audit and organisational change programme could be approached.
