Culture Can Make or Break Strategy -- INSEAD

Culture Can Make or Break Strategy -- INSEAD | Brand New |
Culture is an aggregation of the mindset and beliefs of an organisation’s employees. The manifestation of the principles, vision and mission that bind its people together. In today’s business world, where acquisitions, mergers, diversifications, expansions and sell-offs are becoming more and more common, understanding organisational culture in strategic decision-making is becoming critically important.
Ana Vellozo Luz's insight:

critically important.

Ian Berry's curator insight, December 5, 2014 10:19 PM

I agree that culture can make or break strategy and particularly execution. I love Michael Henderson on culture It's about what does it mean to be human here.

"A company however big or small, cannot successfully implement corporate strategy without employees who believe in the mission"

"Culture assessment is as much about understanding the standalone needs and inherent nuances of each team individual, as it is about pre-empting the resultant sum-of-parts of the various individuals who come together on the team," says Anjan Purandare, CEO, Ivyclique.

World Development Report 2015: Mind, Society, and Behavior

The World Development Report 2015: Mind, Society, and Behavior shows how a richer view of human behavior can help achieve development. It shows how a more subtle view of human behavior provides new tools for interventions.

Ana Vellozo Luz's insight:

New tools!

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, December 7, 2014 7:29 PM

To inspire a fresh look at how development work is done, the report outlines three principles of human decision making: thinking automatically, thinking socially, and thinking with mental models. Much of human thinking is automatic and depends on whatever comes to mind most effortlessly. All people are deeply social and many will cooperate as long as others do too, and they are influenced by social networks and norms. Finally, most people do not invent new concepts; rather they use mental models drawn from their societies and shared histories to interpret their experiences.
