Digital Master Chapter IV Introduction: Digital Culture

The strategy is about living a holistic, integrative and transdisciplinary perspective.

Culture is the collective mind-set: attitude, behavior or approach to work adopted by or embedded among a group of people in the conduct of business. Every organization has a culture, whether defined or not. Actual culture is a function of leadership, starting at the top. Culture is like the “glue” that holds and binds an organization together. It is the most invisible, but powerful, fabric weaved in the organizations and surrounding the society as well.


There are many culture metaphors; culture is like soil, the glue, the fabric or the mixing colors of paint. Culture is like the “glue” that holds and binds an organization together. It is the most invisible, but powerful, fabric weaved in the organizations and surrounding the society as well. Culture is like water; it can keep the enterprise ship afloat and push it toward the right direction, or it can drag down the ship, even sink it. Culture could also be analogized to the “spirit” of the organization – much like the “soul or spirit” of a human being and the spirit of the organization comes from the top. Culture is like air, we all have to share together, keep it fresh.



The Culture Assessment Questionnaires:


1. Why is culture so critical in business success?


2. What are the symptoms of toxic culture?


3. What kind of culture do you have and is it in alignment with what you are trying to achieve?


4. If not, identify the culture gaps between what you have and what you want, and work toward that end. 5. How do you effectively change and in what time frame do you make the transition? And can you?
