How can culture hinder or, on the contrary, support the strategic stakes of an organization? What are the levers of action on culture ?

Today, it is common to associate the question of organizational culture with the definition of values. These values are generally essential in the eyes of leaders in order to complete the exercise of defining the organization’s mission and vision.

However, this definition of values, even if it has the merit of specifying the desired direction, often proves to be insufficient or even frustrating in the field to truly influence behavior.

There are many needs to influence collective behavior: attracting and retaining talent, preventing psycho-social risks, supporting change management and the adoption processes, integrating entities in the context of mergers and acquisitions, etc.

The culture of an organization is therefore a difficult element to grasp, one that is subtle, but which nevertheless has a determining impact on the organization’s ability to adapt to the challenges of its environment.

This training explores what organizational culture is, how to characterize it objectively, the approach and tools to influence it and succeed in a cultural transformation process to create sustainable value for the organization.
