Organizational Change: Is Your Organization's Culture Stuck in a Rut?
Even the most successful companies can find themselves stuck in a rut when it comes to their organizational culture. You may be communicating well with your stakeholders but, if your internal communication isn't up to par, performance will undoubtedly suffer.
The first step to putting things right is to accept that there's a problem in the first place. If you've noticed signs like poor communication or productivity, it may be time to tweak your tactics and polish your processes. But how do you go about driving organizational change and once you've got out of your rut, how do you make sure that you don't slip back into it again?
One of our clients, a well known UK-based food processing company was facing just such a dilemma. Cash-poor and uncompetitive in an increasingly squeezed and over-supplied market, the company's managers knew that their outmoded organizational culture was at the root of their problem. An organizational model built on deep functional siloes had resulted in their procurement function becoming almost completely detached from other internal stakeholders. As a result, there was little inter-departmental communication and a widespread lack of confidence in procurement. The company needed to take action fast to reduce bottom-line costs, re-launch its brand and grow its top line.
