Culture or Climate: Simple Assessments
You say climate, I say culture, climate, culture —
Let’s survey the whole thing now! 

How do you go about understanding what is going on in an organization and why?

This session is intended to get your head in gear on this basic competency of any OD Consultant.

Come explore approaches to understanding culture — or oh wait, is it climate we are measuring, and does it make a difference? Do we use instruments and if so what instruments? If not instruments, what methods will give us insight? How much effort will be required to get what results? Are we sure about what is being measured? If it is climate, will that provide us with insights into an organization’s culture? And, what about fragmentation?

Come enjoy this discussion of a foundation of our business from easy to heavy. Let’s see if we can simplify the understanding of culture.
