Kevin provides an overview of the importance of culture and the ability for it to be understood by organizational stakeholders.
My favorite nugget from Oakes’ Introduction is, “...companies that effectively changed their cultures were successful because they were renovating what they had, not starting from scratch and completely rebuilding or transforming.” Oakes’ insight on this point ciphered from the plethora of data and case studies, drove him to this epiphany, which is a key tenet of the book. I find these aha moments often to be some of the most powerful flywheels for innovation.
Another interesting data point is that “Only 15 percent of companies that embark on culture are successful. So, i4cp developed a culture renovation blueprint, in three sections: Plan, Build, and Maintain, in 18 steps.
That's what this book is about and it's amazing!
