Culture guides most of the decisions in your company. Your people will conform to it whether it’s the one you want, or just the one that evolved because you didn’t consciously build a better one.
If it’s risk-averse, your business will be. If it’s undisciplined, your business will be. If it’s content with the status quo, your business will be. You can’t execute tomorrow’s strategy with today’s culture. Look at your culture today, and if you can’t say it’s better than it was six months ago, then decide now that it needs to change and start the change process now.
