Improve your strategy implementation, transformation, and project management. Learn why aligning your approach with company culture is critical for success.

This week I have one simple message for you, whether you’re a CEO, transformation leader, change management professional or project manager.

You can’t implement your strategy, digital transformation or projects until you’ve done this one thing: “adapt your approach to your culture.”

No matter how much you may want to execute any initiative (including changing the culture), you can’t influence at scale until you’ve figured out how to align your execution approach to the culture. This includes:

  • your business rationale and strategic context, so people get the “why”
  • your project management governance, essential to get traction
  • your change management approach, to build momentum
  • your leadership style, particularly if you are new to the organization

And once you’ve figured this out, you can significantly accelerate the change.

Here’s a one minute video on this, from the Rethink Change conference that I presented at last Friday in Sydney, Australia.
