A Model for Linking Organizational Culture and Performance. Innovative Session 6. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
McCullough, Cathy Bolton
An innovative session was conducted to introduce session participants to a concept and researched model for linking organizational culture and performance. The session goals were as follows: (1) give participants a working knowledge of the link between business culture and key business performance indicators; (2) give participants a hands-on understanding of the implications of an organization's specific culture profile; and (3) help participants understand the pathways for accelerated change in high performing organizations through targeted culture change strategies based on the Denison Organizational Culture Survey (DOCS). The DOCS, which is based on the premise that people's behaviors are a reflection of the culture of the organization where they work, was presented as a model to utilize for applied research. Session participants were introduced to the DOCS and given an opportunity to learn to use it to determine where an organization needs to focus its energies and to educate leaders, managers, and employees relative to issues of alignment, organizational direction, employee involvement, and sense of validation. Participants were facilitated through an open discussion of case studies, best practices, and success/failure stories. The discussion was guided by implications, applications, future research, questions, and points of interest. (Contains 30 references.) (MN)
