Culture Code
A guide for the way of life at Gemba Academy
What is culture?
A set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and
practices that characterize an organization.
Culture is to recruiting as product is to marketing.
Customers are more easily attracted with
a great product.
Talent is more easily attracted with
a great culture.
Culture happens!
Whether we put thought or purpose behind it.
Why not create a culture that we are passionate about?
We are passionate about…
š Respect for people
š Leadership
š Humility
š Aptitude to learn
š Continuous Improvement
š Creating value for the customer
Respect for people…
Plainly said, we value what people bring to the table!
We foster independence
We promote a learning environment
We believe in transparency
We are open, honest and respectful in our interactions
Independence
Is essential in our virtual environment
Independence
š We strive for context; not control.
š We empower employees to learn, collaborate and make
decisions.
š We believe people innately want to do good – and we trust
our employees to make sound decisions.
To help guide these decisions we have a general policy…
General Policy
USE GOOD JUDGMENT.
What is good judgment?
1.  Team > Self
Favor your team over yourself.
2.  Company > Team
3.  Customer > Company
Transparency
We share what we know because we feel nothing is gained by holding back.
We are proactive in our approach.
-We hold back only when we are required to do so. Example- items covered in NDA’s
Power is gained by sharing knowledge; not hoarding it.
We expect you to do the same.
Views on Transparency
Old School
š  Information should be kept secret
š  Employee vs. Company
š  Hoarding knowledge allows you to be the
perceived expert and creates a sense of
job security
š  Thrives on a culture of privacy
New School
š  Information is easily accessible and
available
š  Openness and trust
š  Sharing knowledge allows for others to
feed off and add to your idea, creating
better ideas.
š  Thrives on a culture of transparency
Open & honest communication
š We are willing to say what we think even when it won’t be popular.
š We only say things about others that we are willing to say to their
face.
š We listen and keep an open mind when someone is relaying
information - even when we don’t like what they are saying.
We are passionate about…
š Respect for people
š Leadership
š Humility
š Aptitude to learn
š Continuous Improvement
š Creating value for the customer
The first responsibility of a leader is to define
reality.
The last is to say thank you.
In between, the leader is a servant.
-Max DePree
Effective Leaders
are not defined by titles; they are defined
by behavior.
Leaders demonstrate:
Competence – they know what
they are doing.
Character – they do the right
thing, even when it’s not
convenient.
Compassion – they care as
much about others as they do
about themselves.
Catalyst – they remove
obstacles and make things
happen.
We are passionate about…
š Respect for people
š Leadership
š Humility
š Aptitude to learn
š Continuous Improvement
š Creating value for the customer
“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is
thinking of yourself less.”
- C.S. Lewis
Humility is:
o Being self aware and respectful.
o An openness to someone else having an even better idea than you.
o A quiet confidence without the need for an embellished selling of our wares.
o A lack of arrogance, not a lack of aggressiveness in the pursuit of achievement.
- The true measure of a person is how they treat those who can be of absolutely no use to them.
We are passionate about…

Aptitude to learn
The ability to learn faster than your competitors
may be the only sustainable competitive
advantage.
-Ari De Geus
Change is constant; being
adaptable is necessary for
success.
We need employees who are
curious, who are willing to make
mistakes and go out on a limb
and ask dumb questions in order
to develop new capabilities and
new solutions.
We are passionate about…
š Respect for people
š Leadership
š Humility
š Aptitude to learn
š Continuous Improvement
š Creating value for the customer
“Improvement usually means doing something
that we have never done before.”
-Shigeo Shingo
Continuous Improvement
š  Our goal is to live and breathe what Gemba Academy aspires to teach the world.
š  We create value by continually analyzing and improving our processes and eliminating
waste.
š  Continuous improvement is characterized by having employees engaged, producing
regular improvements, and by being evolutionary rather than revolutionary.
We value and recognize individuals that do the above.
Continuous Improvement is a Mindset
š  We do not define our purpose as an activity – this stalls forward thinking
š  We define our purpose as a value that we provide to our customers – this allows us to
transform, learn and evolve.
š  This mindset and style of thinking allows us to create the next innovative wave instead of
waiting to ride the one someone created for us.
“We’d rather be failing frequently
than never trying new things.”
-HubSpot couldn’t have said it better so we didn’t try to either.
We are passionate about…
š Respect for people
š Leadership
š Humility
š Aptitude to learn
š Continuous Improvement
š Creating value for the customer
Because of the
Customer we exist.
Creating value for the customer
Webster’s definition of value:
-a fair return or equivalent in goods,
services, or money for something
exchanged.
-relative worth, utility or importance
Value isn’t fixed or tangible; it rests in the
perceived benefits or in the eye of the
beholder.
We are in control of this perception.
We create value by:
Enabling learning for our customers by providing high value content,
learning support systems and efficient content access.
We are passionate about…
š Respect for people
š Leadership
š Humility
š Aptitude to learn
š Continuous Improvement
š Creating value for the customer
Welcome aboard.
We are thrilled to have you join the Gemba Academy team!
We welcome your feedback and discussion.
