Your organization’s culture provides individuals with a way of giving meaning to their daily lives, setting guidelines and rules for how to behave, and, most important, reducing and containing the anxiety of dealing with an unpredictable and uncertain environment. In other words, an organization’s culture tells people what is right versus wrong and explains cause and effect thereby influencing their decisions and actions.
Using the Culture-Strategy Fit Model, we are able to determine the landscape of your organization’s current culture. The model uses 24 culture cards.
Each of the Culture Cards describes a cultural practice, behavior or other attribute that is relevant to different organizational contexts. Using the cards ensured that participants had a common framework and language that significantly contributed to the development of a shared understanding of the current culture of the organization.
The Culture Cards provide a framework and shared language for talking, in a safe way, about culture and how it is supporting and/or getting in the way of performance and strategy execution. They are an effective tool for engaging Leaders and others in conversations about culture paving the way to greater understanding and an intentional approach to shaping and changing culture. They are most effective when used to answer specific questions about the business, such as a problem or goal. This makes the card sort activity concrete and practical while at the same time acknowledging the important role culture plays in the way organizations operate.
