We've all heard that "culture eats strategy for breakfast". But why? Leaders today are aware that culture strongly influences how people think, feel, and act in their efforts to support their organization's success. The problem is that they use methods that just describe their unique culture type without linking those descriptions to tangible performance metrics such as revenue growth.

Now, leaders need to augment "descriptive" measures with "ability" measures, which quantitatively assess their organization's change "readiness" and capability to shift its culture in adaptive and proactive ways.

This session will highlight a compelling comparison of results using pre and post measures of The Foray Group currently in the middle of organizational transformation. The analysis will demonstrate how the organization leveraged a new organizational development tool called the OGI (Organizational Growth Indicator) to measure and evaluate its efforts.

Specifically, the session will demonstrate how the organization was able to:

  • quantify a positive "organizational" shift to a more entrepreneurial mindset, 
  • evaluate the ROI and level of impact of a training and development program focussed on embedding creativity and innovation into the fabric of their culture, and
  • harness the tangible metrics to build organizational momentum for change.

In this highly interactive session, our speakers will guide you through a live and virtual exploration of the "Inconvenient Truths" associated with organizational innovation, and which may be at play within your own organizations. You will also be given a tool to reflect upon and map the "Cultural Mindset" currently operating within your own organization. This tool will help you explore the implications for supporting positive transformation and sustained success within a context of change and disruption. In addition, you will hear The Foray Group’s experiences with the OGI.
