The CULTURE-STRATEGY FIT® Culture Dynamics Pulse looks closely at the social dynamics within and across teams. A powerful alternative to a team effectiveness survey, it focuses on the way things happen rather than on individual behavior. This encourages people to feel safe to share their experiences and work together on solutions. It zooms in on five specific culture dimensions – Agility (speed & dexterity), Collaboration (dynamics between teams), Engagement (personal dynamics), Performance (success dynamics) and Trust (dynamics within teams).

By understanding the way culture dynamics are influencing within and cross-boundary work, teams can build on their culture strengths, set priorities and make the changes required to be more adaptable, collaborative, productive, innovative, customer focused and effective. Our unique focus on patterns of behaviors and practices and their inter-play means teams can use the insights gained from the survey results to take targeted and practical action. This is the ideal tool for Divisions, Functions, Departments or Project Teams wanting to improve performance while working through change, such as new strategies, re-structuring, space design and systems implementations.
