Culture can be seen as a collection of organisational habits – the behaviours that are normal or usual for us and the systems, signals and stories that reinforce them. As organisational culture consultants and practitioners, we’ve also seen that it is the underlying beliefs and assumptions that people hold about what matters and what’s OK that drive those behaviours.
Collecting data about those beliefs can be the key to understanding what’s driving helpful and less helpful cultural norms and behaviours in organisations and gives insight into how those behaviours might be amplified or encouraged to change.
The current crisis has resulted in huge behaviour shifts for many organisations and has challenged many of our beliefs and assumptions about what’s possible and how we need to work. In particular we’ve seen dramatic increases in the pace of innovation.
Take part in our research
As part of our ongoing commitment to understanding more about organisational culture during these unusual times, we are looking for teams, business units and organisations to take part in a piece of research focused on the underlying beliefs that are enabling rapid innovation.
What will you gain from participating?
Taking part involves sharing a simple 15 minute survey with colleagues in the organisation. You will then receive a confidential report summarising your results, including:
- The beliefs and assumptions that exist within your organisation which may help or hinder the ability to innovate.
- Where (and how) to focus effort so that your organisation’s ability to innovate can be enhanced.
To participate, simply complete the form to the right.
