The artefacts of organisational culture

Viv Mcwaters

The signs seemed, to me, to indicate a culture of control and mistrust. A colleague used to say that he could tell a lot about an organisation’s culture simply by visiting the tea-room and seeing what artefacts were present. Like the signs in the clubrooms, tearooms are a microcosm of the broader organisational culture: signs about how to act, notices about social events, what’s stuck on the fridge, newspapers or magazines.

The myth of managed culture change

Chris Corrigan

For a long time I have known that the idea that culture change can be managed is a myth. A culture is emergent and is the result of millions of interactions, behaviours, artifacts and stories that people build up over time. Culture includes stories but it is not a story.

Chris Corrigan

There are no movement structures, but instead a movement is a mass migration of people, organizations, businesses and communities unified in common story, driving to shift culture, policy, behavior and norms. Cultures are complex and require complexity to change them.

Context and culture in communities of practice

Jenny Connected

A predominant feature of BEtreat was the impact of context and culture on the learning process.
