Identifying and analysing something as intangible as a 'culture' means trying to understand a complex bundle of interactions, processes, motivations and agendas.
Where it is an important factor, Imparta assesses culture through different 'lenses', from what drives the sense of purpose, to the norms of working life, and the way leaders behave. We use a variety of tools to drill down into these areas, including focus groups, online surveys, interactive media, on-site observations and roadshows. Outputs are expressed as heatmaps, blueprints, benchmarks, and quantitative reports, providing rich insight for informing cultural change.
What's the benefit? Culture plays a part in almost all transformation initiatives, but its importance as a factor will depend on what you are trying to achieve. In most cases, a high-level cultural assessment will pay for itself many times over. If there is a strong cultural element to the change, then a more in-depth assessment will be necessary, unless it has already been done internally.
