Organisational Culture - Beyond The Intangible - A Practical Guide

Over the last couple of months, I had the opportunity to co-author a report with some Australian leaders that serves as a framework for Boards and senior leadership teams to understand more of their roles in an effective culture in an organisation. The framework is designed not as the solution but a platform from which cultural issues can be addressed. 

The co-authors would be pleased to discuss and hear your comments. As one of my colleagues said organisational culture is a practice, not a one time event. Looking forward to seeing how this report can be used.
