Organisational culture and its response to change is key to the success of all technology projects. Explore how to assess your organisation’s culture and how to adjust your Change Programme in order to be more successful
The success of any project or re-engineering of an organisation is dependent upon an effective change management programme. Change and its impact is hard and as such organisations are looking for innovative approaches to drive success.
Social engineering techniques are playing an increasing role in corporate IT, exploiting people’s habitual responses to certain social triggers and cues. With social engineering usage in cyber attacks, for example, prior to applying any technology, hackers have learned to apply their “people skills” first to significantly soften the target. What happens if an approach of social engineering or ‘cultural anthropology’ is applied to change management?
Lessons learned from decades of anthropological and sociological research can be combined with cutting edge monitoring and analysis software, potentially dramatically impacting on corporate change programmes. This workshop will address how this approach can maximise the effectiveness of an organisation’s entire change programme.
Using the 6 dimensions of culture identified by Geert Hofstede https://geert-hofstede.com/ the workshop will help deliver a better understanding of an organisation undergoing change. Some represented organisations will be requested to undertake a short internal survey to support analysis at the workshop.
