“Culture eats strategy for breakfast, operational excellence for lunch, and everything else for dinner!”
– Peter Drucker
Company culture has been a trending topic over the past decade and for good reason. Once thought of as the fun perks or trendy workspaces companies offer, culture is now recognized as a real business issue because it is the foundation from which all businesses operate. Culture is all the “squishy stuff” that makes up a company. It tells people in a business how they get work done, how people work together, how decisions are made, and how to behave. It touches every part of the business from top to bottom, inside and out (think customers and investors).

Corporate strategy speak typically includes words like product, price, and service. Where does culture fit in this equation? It doesn’t. It IS the equation.
“…culture isn’t just one aspect of the game; it is the game. In the end, an organization is nothing more than the collective capacity of its people to create value.” – Past IBM CEO Lou Gerstner
