Culture Change

Sign up here for our newsletter on globalization and localization matters.

Culture Change is seen either being too whimsical to take seriously, or too difficult to manage. At both of these extremes, the result is the same: culture change is ignored or left to chance, and the opportunity to make lasting, positive change is lost. This is particularly noticeable with company mergers and acquisitions because the inability to understand and change culture is one of the main reasons why 85% of company mergers fail to deliver the promised value.

It doesn’t have to be this way, of course. If you decide to make three simple but significant changes to how your run your business, you can transform your company from a typical organization to a thriving organization, delivering remarkable results.

Key take-aways

At the end of the presentation, you will understand:

  1. What culture is and its impact on strategy
  2. The key to changing employee behaviour
  3. How to take a typical organisation and transform it into a thriving company

After his presentation, Paul Doherty is in conversation with Kåre Lindahl, CEO of Venga Global, and will take questions from the audience.
