Culture: The Missing Link

Culture: The Missing Link

Good strategy has traditionally been seen as the key to business success. More recently, purpose has become an essential element of doing business. But something else is missing: culture, or the essential elements of how an organization and its employees behave, as well as its governing beliefs and principles. And yet, culture often receives less attention than purpose and strategy.

The Triangle

The Triangle

What do successful companies like Microsoft, Netflix, Best Buy, and many others have in common? Culture has been the fertile soil that has enabled their purpose and strategy to come to life and drive extraordinary performance at scale.

Purpose, strategy, and culture form a triangle: Each angle connects with and shapes the other two, and if one changes, the other two must evolve and adjust to maintain balance and shape, or the triangle breaks and falls apart.

The Three Levers

The Three Levers

Changing a company’s culture requires more than role modelling.

Companies can use three types of levers to profoundly shape an influential culture and allow their strategy to come to fruition:

Business levers, management levers, and “human magic” levers.

Business Levers

Business Levers

  • Operational progress creates strategic degrees of freedom.
  • Improving operations influence strategic choices.
  • However, changes in business operation shape company culture, too.
  • Companies have to act from the outside in and from the bottom up.
  • The company's future depends on listening to customers and improving their lives.

The Culture At Netflix: 'No Rules' Rule!

The Culture At Netflix: 'No Rules' Rule!

At Netflix, there is only one policy for travel, entertainment, gifts, and other expenses: “Act in Netflix’s best interest.” That’s it. Also, there are no company-wide rules on office hours or the number of vacation days employees can take. These reflect the culture of “freedom with responsibility”

There are other management levers that shape culture, such as seeking to recruit only “stunning colleagues” and rewarding adequate performance with a generous severance package; and offering frequent, honest, and constructive feedback.

Management Levers

Management Levers

Key management processes directly impact culture as well.

What kind of people do you appoint to positions of power? What kind of people does your company recruit? Does performance trump bad behaviour? How are decisions made and by whom? What are key business rhythms? How are meetings conducted? What kind of controls and compliance are in place?

All these structures, processes, and rules can shape culture.

Human Magic Levers

Human Magic Levers

These are the essential and interconnected ingredients that, together, create an environment in which people are eager and able to fully give their energy and talent to serve the company's purpose.

Articulating the company’s culture as a singular, simple, and yet powerful idea makes it easier to answer all these questions and use all three levers with that in mind.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
