An organization's culture is a complex, highly valuable asset, difficult to replicate and a powerful competitive advantage when aligned with corporate strategy. Culture is “the way we do things around here” and becomes visible in the choices people make, how they interact with one another and how they deliver against their objectives. Culture can be transformed through an understanding of the current and desired future state, and by activating various organizational levers, such as changes in management processes, learning, recruitment, and leader behaviors, to steer the culture in the desired direction. By examining two sets of dimensions — core and differentiating — Deloitte’s Culture Framework and Diagnostic Tool provides the objective insight and rigor required to understand cultural strengths and gaps and drive the behaviors needed to support business strategy and achieve truly differentiated performance. Focusing on ‘moments that matter’ provides a frame to reinforce and embed key behaviours and achieve an organization’s cultural ambitions.
An organizations distinctive culture can be a powerful competitive advantage. However, when not aligned to the company strategy and adapted to changing contexts, it can result in the loss of business value. One of the greatest challenges that companies face is shaping their culture in such a way that it drives the organizational strategy and increases performance. Successful organizations have tapped into the value of answering difficult cultural questions, such as: How do we shape a ‘high performance culture’? How can we stimulate innovation in the workplace? How do we build a diverse and inclusive workforce? How do we encourage behaviors that support a digital culture? How can we create a culture that fosters collaboration, courage and agility?
