Organisational culture


Every company’s identity is grounded in the way people think and behave. Organization’s that can determine which behaviors embedded in their culture can be applied to accelerate the changes that they want - and find ways to counterbalance and diminish other elements of the culture that hinder them - can initiate, accelerate, and sustain truly beneficial change with far less effort, time, and expense, and with better results.

PwC and Strategy& have the capabilities, insights, tools and experience to help harness the power of organisational culture to ensure business strategy, operating model and cultures are coherent to maximize effectiveness, making the company more attractive to its employees and customers, and can drive business value.

Cultural diagnosis

We help you to assess your existing culture in concrete, specific and objective terms either through interviews with senior leaders, surveys, and focus groups. We identify and analyse the cultural traits, including strengths and potential challenges that most impact your business.

We help you to develop culture strategic plan that focuses on the ‘critical few’. By defining your culture aspirations and identifying and prioritising the critical behaviours to evolve your culture we help you drive performance and advance key business needs.

We help you to integrate formal and informal enabling mechanisms. Using informal approaches to build emotional commitment and pride (e.g. networks, peer interactions, exemplary motivational leaders) in doing things differently and deploying formal mechanisms to reinforce and sustain the desired 'critical few' behaviour changes.

We help you determine measurement objectives and design criteria. We understand the importance in defining the right measurement approach for your business and how to designing tools and reporting rhythms that help you track progress.
