Measure & analyze leadership and corporate culture
Targeted culture change in companies requires a clear target picture:
- What is the state of the company-culture at the time being?
- What are the“pain points” in the organisation, where is there a real need for action?
- from the point of view of top management
- from the point of view of middle management
- from the point of view of the employees?
- How would an optimal“company culture” have to look like in order to optimally support the strategic goals of the company?
- Which fields of action are there and which concrete measures have to be implemented in order to change the corporate culture in the desired direction?
- Implementation & Monitoring: Project-based, in agile mode, systemic in approach and impeccable in craftsmanship.
How do you analyze corporate culture?
There are essentially two approaches here: A qualitative and a quantitative approach. For both approaches, initio has tried and tested solutions.
In the following, we describe a very proven quantitative approach to measuring and standardizing corporate culture. We describe our qualitative approach to culture change in detail on this page.
Corporate Culture Analysis Tool
To analyse the existing corporate culture and derive concrete measures, we use a survey and analysis tool that has been tried and tested thousands of times to survey the current corporate culture.
A proven set of questions assesses the current state of the corporate culture in the 12 most important cultural dimensions:
Direct connection with corporate goals
These 12 dimensions enable or hinder the achievement of the company’s goals. That is why our model of corporate culture analysis is closely linked to the most important impact areas of companies:
Quality of results
You will receive concrete and accurate answers to these questions:
- Which fields of action result from the cultural analysis?
- What actions do we need to implement to change our organizational culture in the desired direction?
- How do we compare in relation to other companies?
- What do we need to do to become more flexible, more agile, more stable?
- What do we need to do to increase employee satisfaction and become more attractive to new employees?
This is what the analysis of the survey will look like (example):
So you get the survey data finely granulated – including the benchmark values, of course. Here is an aggregated overview display (example):
In an evaluation workshop, we present the results to you and develop measures for the targeted change of your corporate culture in the desired direction.
This is how we proceed – the overall process
The cultural analysis is carried out in these steps:
The benefits: Concrete approaches to transformation
You identify cultural strengths and weaknesses as well as areas for improvement
You back up your assumptions or validate existing culture change initiatives with solid data
Effective measures: Based on the surveys, we develop effective measures that have tangible results.
Consolidated tracking: You see improvements in your corporate culture over time in black and white
Increasing the value of your company: you develop a corporate culture that generates more revenue
You become a more attractive employer: Talents will come working for your organisation – and stay
Comparability: Our global, normative database ranks where you stand against 10,000 other top companies.
Scalable and comprehensive: also measure employee engagement, employee commitment, innovation, trust, safety and risk management
We compare the data from your organisation with a benchmark from the previous surveys carried out over the past 10 years. So you can see immediately how your organisation is rated compared to other companies.
Measures and subsequent change projects
The data obtained in this way provide clear and precise indications of the areas for action and the measures to be taken in order to bring about the desired cultural change. However, there is still one more step missing: an “action planning” workshop to formulate and decide on measures with the management.
More survey modules
In addition to the “standard” organizational diagnosis tool, survey modules can also be added for other topics:
