Culture isn’t just one aspect of the game, it is the game – Lou Gerstner, former CEO of IBM.
How does organization culture come about? Can you describe what your current culture is like or what you would like it to be? Is there an Organization Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI) that can clearly identify the current as well as the preferred culture?
Whenever there is a group of people, organization culture happens. It is the behavioral norms, shared values and beliefs of that group. In most cases, people may not be aware, but sub-consciously they are influencing, copying and adapting to fit into the organization culture.
Organization culture depicts the way employees “do things around here”. Given this fact, there is an increased importance to develop a desired culture that contributes positively to the organization.
In a 2018 survey by Human Capital Institute (HCI) and International Coach Federation (ICF), 75% of HR practitioners and leaders report that their organization is in a state of constant change with continuously shifting priorities and strategies. Additionally, 85% of organizations have experienced an unsuccessful change management initiative in the past two years.
BP Coach helps organization analyse, develop and sustain high performing culture. Our assessment instruments and culture change methodologies have been tested and proven for more than thirty years in organizations.
Organization Culture Change
Analysis – Organization Assessment (OCAI)
Prior to the start of the change management project, it is important to assess what the current culture of the organization. OCAI (Organization Culture Assessment Instrument) developed by Kim Cameron and Robert Quinn is a validated research method to assess organizational culture.
Based on the Competing Values Framework (CVF), the OCAI report provides a quantitative view of the organization culture as shown below.
BP Coach is the authorized partner in Singapore for the OCAI-online tool. Organizations can quickly conduct the organization survey with all their employees to understand their current and preferred culture. It is important to gather both the quantitative as well as the qualitative analysis during this phase.
After the analysis phase, the next phase is to develop the interventions required for the change. Through workshops and coaching sessions, BP Coach will use proven methodologies to guide the organization through this change process.
This change process will involve both the leaders and the employees. Leaders will learn about interaction interventions while employees will experience the power of change circles.
Often in change management, practitioners and change sponsors are focused on what needs to happen at the organizational level rather than the individual level. To successfully implement a new initiative, organizations need to build change management capabilities, so that their people drive and sustain change rather than see change as something that happens to them.
BP Coach works closely with the clients to build these capabilities so that organizations can continue and sustain a positive and high-performance culture.
