This episode provides you with an understanding of the factors that shape the way organizations operate and succeed. It is said, “culture eats strategy for breakfast”. Find out more about the model which tags 6 cultural mechanisms to drive an organization. How do we shape organizational culture within a business context? Culture tells people how to succeed. To change a culture, it’s important to first understand what makes the current culture successful before it can be modified.
The 6 culture embedding mechanisms are windows to look through and see what is driving the culture. The 6 mechanisms are: what senior managers control on a regular basis; the perceived criteria by which leaders get promoted or fired; the kind of role modeling senior management do; how the organization allocates resources; reward and status within an organization; and how senior management pay attention to bad news. These six windows give an insight into the company culture.
