Overview

Corporate culture is critical to any organizational change effort—this book offers a proven model for identifying and leveraging the essential elements of any culture.

In a world that changes at a dizzying pace, what can leaders do to build flexible and adaptive workplaces that inspire people to achieve extraordinary results? According to the authors, the answer lies in recognizing and aligning the elusive forces—or the “puzzling” pieces—that shape an organization’s culture.

With a combined seventy-five years’ worth of research, teaching, and consulting experience, Mario Moussa, Derek Newberry, and Greg Urban bring a wealth of knowledge to creating nimble organizations. Globally recognized business anthropologists and management experts, they explain how to access the full power of your culture by harnessing the Four Forces that drive it:

Vision: Embrace a common purpose that illuminates shared aspirations and plans.
Interest: Foster a deep commitment to authentic relationships and your organization’s future.
Habit: Establish routines and rituals that reinforce “the way we do things around here.”
Innovation: Promote the constant tinkering that produces surprising new solutions to old problems.

Filled with case studies, personal anecdotes, and solid, practical advice, this book includes a four-part Evaluator to help you build resilient organizations and teams. The Culture Puzzle offers the definitive playbook for thriving amid constant transformation.
