Why “Company Culture” is a Misleading Term

There’s a lot more going on.
FRANK FEATHER ~ Business Futurist's insight:

This article is 100% wrong and self-contradictory. These kinds of sensationalist articles drive me crazy; they are just seeking attention. Anyway, near the end of a series of rambling contradictions, the author says this: "Corporations and other organizations do not have cultures; they have philosophies and ideologies that form a process in which there is a constant discourse about the nature and expression of values, beliefs, practices, ideas, and goals." ... But that is precisely what is a culture! Even the author admits he complied with the culture of DEC (which was a failed culture, by the way) just to draw a pay check. In other words, he was part of the very reason that DEC failed, because he neither fell in with nor took issue with the prevailing erroneous culture!

Serving as a CEO, he said, “has been difficult—and lonely.” Yet he’d found that it was indeed possible to be values-driven while also winning Wall Street’s respect. “But the only ingredient that works in this environment is performance—so we have to perform.”

How to See the Future First

How to See the Future First | FUTURISTIC LEADERSHIP | Scoop.it
One of the biggest challenges innovators face is to truly understand the market opportunity space before they start creating a strategy and well in advance of product development.

Via Bonnie Hohhof
FRANK FEATHER ~ Business Futurist's insight:

Strange and confused article. Headline disagrees with conclusion: "Seeing the future first is worthless. Getting to the future first is priceless." Conclusion is wrong. You can indeed see the future first, and not just in the way that the author suggests. I maintain that the future belongs to those who get their first, and that you can see the future. The article is very confused about whether to innovate before or after you have seen the future. The future should drive innovation, although it can occur the other way around. And it is possible to see the future from the Boardroom if you have a futurist on the Board!

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 31, 10:38 AM

Some of us remember recent predictions of gas topping $5 a gallon in the U.S. Or not. Just recently the weather community was abuzz with a predicted "snowmaggedon" in the Northeast U.S. Or not. Predicting the future is probably nearly impossible. Visualizing the possibilities for the future have a great likelihood for success, but seeing the possibilities and doing all that is entailed to realize the possibilities and make them realities, well, that's just hard work and planning. But it all starts with the vision.

Via Don Dea
FRANK FEATHER ~ Business Futurist's insight:

more...
Don Dea's curator insight, January 28, 12:40 AM

The classic approach to corporate strategy starts with a presumption: that with sufficient analytical rigor and an adequate assessment of the probabilities, strategists can pave a predictable path to the future from the matter of the past. In this world, they make reasonable assumptions about the evolution of product markets, capital markets, technology, and government regulation and, in effect, "assume away" most risk. Chief executive officers articulate strategy every few years, often in the context of a change in top management.

Such traditional strategy formulation often pays lip service to the perspectives of the capital markets, to changing industry structures, and to the forces at work in the environment. But in reality, a "visionary" corporate strategy is often an internally driven reflection of what the company wants the world to look like.
