The organisation's culture


Last Published  01 August 2012

Unless they are starting a new team, managers will be inheriting an existing team culture - so it is important for them to quickly assess which aspects are highly valued by the team. They also need to identify early on any aspects they think might need changing.

This tool helps managers to grasp the culture very quickly, assess their current team, create an action plan and move forward with confidence.

Tool aims
  • To provide a definition of 'organisational culture' 
  • To help managers to make a balanced list of cultural characteristics needed for an effective team 
  • To help managers to assess their current team culture using a scoring system and, if required, enable them to identify the priority areas for change.
