Presentation Description

Change of any kind can be difficult. However, culture change within any organization can seem daunting. As an integral part of its Process Consultation approach to organizational culture change initiatives, illumyx recommends the formation of a cross-functional Culture Advisory Team (CAT). Some of the ways forming a CAT can help organizational leaders create successful and healthy culture change:

  • Launch, communicate, and evangelize the organization’s vision for culture change at multiple levels.

  • Assist in designing, developing, and implementing the initiative “from the ground-up.”

  • Get different functions to collaborate more effectively.

  • Weave collaboration networks throughout the organization.

  • Inform stakeholders of ongoing progress and champion success stories.

  • Provide an “on-the-ground” perspective to evaluate what’s working and what’s not. 


Three Takeaways:

  1. A collaborative approach to culture change design, development, implementation, and evaluation.

  2. Better integration and alignment for more effective culture change at all levels of an organization.

  3. More effective engagement strategy for successful culture change.
