Importance of culture

Success depends on:

  • The empowerment of managers
  • A versatile management system which enables managers to exercise control over the people process from establishing individual role outputs and plan- aligned talent specifications to on-boarding and developing talent, to achieving operational objectives and developing delivery units which can drive ambitious strategy.
  • A culture which:
    • Demands and enables managers to apply their newly acquired people process skills
    • Rewards the achievement of operational effectiveness and the development and retention of talent
    • Integrates the three core processes of strategy, operations and people

Success is the combination of empowered managers (30%), a versatile management system (30%), and an enabling culture (40%)
