Need a quick culture intervention?
A Culture Pattern Analysis can give you a FAST head start and insights and recommendations you can put into action immediately.
Culture has an impact on everything inside your organization, so even if the time isn’t right for a full-on culture design project, you need to have a good enough understanding of your culture patterns to make sure they are fully supporting your efforts in areas like employee engagement, office moves, or mergers and acquisitions.
Our Culture Pattern Analysis provides a quick but thorough analysis of your culture, specifically through a lens of your choice (3 examples below), and provides a report which is jam packed with recommendations that will have immediate impact. The process takes only about 2-3 weeks. We’ll review existing data and documents and conduct a few separate discovery meetings with staff to clarify issues and identify key culture patterns, and then deliver the final report.
Workplace Culture / Employee Engagement
One of the challenging aspects of culture is that it has the power to evolve and change on its own, which means you have a choice: design it with intention, or risk it evolving in ways that get in the way of results and reduce employee engagement.
The first step in good culture design is getting a clear picture of “what is.” The easiest way to start is with a quick and focused analysis of the core patterns inside your culture that could be interfering with engagement and success, including concrete recommendations for how to start addressing the issues in ways that will get you results.
Office Design and Culture
The decisions you make today about office design will have a lasting impact, so make sure they are compatible with your workplace culture—both the one you have and the one you want. What if you design collaborative spaces and they don’t get used? What if your layout unintentionally discourages information sharing across departments? Would you know why? Knowing your culture patterns can help you make smarter design decisions. Our quick and effective “Culture Check” will uncover the key patterns inside your culture and how they affect your success.
Culture Compatibility for Mergers & Acquisitions
When mergers or acquisitions fail to produce the value everyone expected, culture is frequently to blame. The problem is that traditional culture surveys miss the key culture patterns that will eventually erode or destroy the value of the merger. We can identify patterns that lie beneath the surface, and our process provides a quick and focused analysis and comparison of the culture patterns inside both organizations in the deal. We’ll then highlight the areas of both similarities and differences that could have the biggest impact on integration. We also give you concrete recommendations for folding those insights into the integration process and strengthening both cultures in the process. (This process usually takes 3-5 weeks, as opposed to our shorter audits).
