Culture and Development

Organisational Culture is commonly referred to as “the way we do things around here” and refers to the commonly accepted and shared sets of behaviours, practices, and values within an organisation. The culture of an organisation has a significant influence on business success, impacting areas such as productivity, commitment, safety, and leadership, and has been identified as a major contributor to recent disasters such as the Texas City Refinery explosion.

Organisations often implement changes and improvement strategies based on lagging indicators, observations, or hunches. Cultural Analysis provides a comprehensive leading indicator, utilising standardised empirical tools to provide a clear overview of the strengths and weaknesses within a company. The Cultural Analysis establishes a baseline by which to measure future improvements, identifies major areas for improvement, and provides organisational recommendations.

Anna Harris & Associates are able to custom design an effective methodology for the analysis of organisational culture, based on the unique requirements of our clients. Upon completion of the cultural analysis and feedback of the final report, we are then able to further assist organisations in developing cultural improvement plans, and have a range of training and development options that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the organisation.
