  9. 9. “For individuals, character is destiny. For organizations, culture is destiny.” – Tony Hsieh “Powerful organizations and great brands got there by aligning with and accelerating tectonic cultural shifts, not by tweaking sales one at a time.” – Seth Godin
  10. 10. What Is Culture? Culture is the collective value system of an organization, which principally drives its behavior. What Culture Is Not? Culture is not necessarily the stylist personality characteristics of an organization. http://balancedis.com glenn@balancedis.com
  11. 11. Why Is Culture So Important? Culture drives behavior. In fact, culture is the single most powerful thing we can focus on to succeed in product development. Culture has more to do with innovation, change, and creativity than compensation systems, title, benefits, workspace, or management style, etc.. Culture breaths life into an organization. Culture defines who we are. http://balancedis.com glenn@balancedis.com
  12. 12. Poll What is culture? A.  The dress code B.  The personality of an organization C.  The policies and procedures D.  The value system held in common http://balancedis.com glenn@balancedis.com
  13. 13. The Liberty Ship •  WWII supply ship •  Credited with winning the war in Europe •  Manufactured in two weeks •  One built in four days •  Efficient manufacturing and supply systems Source: http://militaryhistory.about.com/od/industrialmobilization/p/libertyships.htm The culture that supported the efficient manufacturing of the Liberty ship was an entire country that firmly believed in the morality of the war and the importance of doing our duty for country. This was a culture of higher purpose! http://balancedis.com glenn@balancedis.com
  14. 14. Culture Begins At The Top? If culture change is not fully supported at the highest levels it becomes inauthentic. If rank and file employees do not feel their cultural aspirations are supported by leadership, they will not feel engaged with their work, and nor will they strive for higher achievement. Leadership has the ability to set an example for change, but their example will only be as effective as their efforts are authentic. http://balancedis.com glenn@balancedis.com
  15. 15. "Times change but principles do not. Times change but lands do not. Times change but our culture and our language remain the same. And that's what you have to keep intact. It's not what you wear - it's what's in your heart.” -- Oren Lyons, Onondaga
