Culture: The Forgotten Bit

4,516 views

Published on

The more failed projects and the more underperforming teams I see the more I am convinced that we focus on the wrong things. Neither technical excellence or even a great team is enough to build sustainable organization that delivers and keep its clients happy.

The bit we keep forgetting about is organizational culture. The soul of every organization that heavily affects everything that is happening around. It’s not a surprise. For something as intangible there is no recipe, thus evolving organizational culture is never a sure shot.

Bear with me when we explore how to tame this fuzzy beast. You may learn why some of your efforts were failing or how to be a better leader or that it’s time to move on and find a new job. Most of all you will understand one more layer of a complex environment we call a workplace
