High-Performance Culture

High-Performance Culture | Disaster Management & Infrastructure Protection | Scoop.it

Culture is hot. In our discussions and work with leaders in business, government, and not-for-profit organizations, we have observed a markedly increasing emphasis on culture—for a host of reasons.

 

Leaders trying to reshape their organization’s culture are asking: How can we break down silos and become more collaborative or innovative? Others, struggling to execute strategy, are wondering: How do we reconnect with our customers or adapt more proactively to the new regulatory environment?

 

Leaders overseeing a major transformation want to know how to spark the behaviors that will deliver results during the transformation—and sustain them well beyond. Those involved with a postmerger integration grapple with how to align the two cultures with the new operating model—and reap the sought-after synergies. And those simply seeking operating improvements often ask: How can we become more agile? Accelerate decision making? Embed an obsession for continuous improvement throughout the organization?

John Wade: pragmatic support for law firm leaders's curator insight, September 29, 2013 5:23 PM

Some great insights into why some organisations are better able to implement and leverage change better than others.

Harish Maru's curator insight, March 6, 2014 8:17 PM

Culture in an organisation reflects the values of the society. For example in India society is paternalistic. In business context it will result in limiting some person or group's liberty or autonomy for their own good.

 

How an Indian business organisation leverage this value to achieve high performance? It will be futile to go against this social norm.

Mobile Business Intelligence Puts Data on the Road - Forbes | Disaster Management & Infrastructure Protection | Scoop.it
By Andreas Bitterer and Bhavish Sood Gartner, Inc. Decision making is not something that happens only in the back office or the boardroom. Decisions are made on the road, in warehouses, in client meetings and in airport lounges.
