OCAI online | Is your start-up a successful shape-shifter?

OCAI online | Is your start-up a successful shape-shifter? | the White Samurai | Scoop.it
Organizations change during their life cycle and often move through the four archetypes of culture in the competing values framework. Being aware of culture helps to get successfully through these transformations.
the Change Samurai's insight:

If you don’t consciously create culture, you might suffer confusion during the transformations - or worse - get stuck and perish. If you do shape culture however, you might have an interesting journey! Culture makes the difference: employees and customers sense it immediately. They test whether your image is true - and check if you and your company are authentic. What do you value most?
