22Exercise:What do you think? How do you think CTS’s culture affects its ability to successfully change?How will it affect your ability to implement your change?What can you do as a Manager or Project Leader to move CTTS towards an ideal culture?
23“Corporate culture is real and powerful “Corporate culture is real and powerful. It’s also hard to change, and you won’t find much support for doing so inside or outside your company. If you run up against the culture when trying to redirect strategy, attempt to dodge. If you must meddle with the culture directly, tread carefully and with modest expectations”Bro UttalCorporate Culture Vultures
24Summary Companies that fail to change may not survive By changing , CTS stand to gain significantly in many areas, which will benefit everyoneCTS’s organizational culture may not be “ideal” but understanding the current culture will assist in helping make changes that will positively affect it.

73“ That which gets measured and rewarded gets done” Why is Performance Management Important in successful Change Implementation“ That which gets measured and rewarded gets done”What are the new behaviours and performance standards?How will we measure them?How will we reward them?
74Principles of Performance Management Performance standards are aligned with company strategies and goalsMetrics exist to monitor performanceEmployees are provided with specific goals and actions to improve performance, on an on-going basis.
75Team based Structures Work Best When People share common, clearly defined goalsEveryone on the team will benefit from achieving the goalDifferent types of expertise and skill are needed to accomplish the goalTasks require interdependence and interactionThe organizations culture supports and values employee involvementManagers are willing to use team output
76Team based structures are less effective when: One person can be equally or more effective at the taskThe task requires individual accountability and / or fast paced decision makingWork output required in a short timeTeam members accountabilities and reward systems are different(especially when in conflict)Not having the requisite interpersonal skills, or the energy or commitment to acquire themManagers do not understand or support team processOrganization does not have value collaboration and will not reward people who share information, expertise or success.
77Factors in Effective Team Building Coaching:The team management philosophy requires that workers be trained to “ manage” themselves. Managers need to be coaches rather than “bosses”Decision Making:It must be made clear who has the responsibility and authority for which decisions, both inside and outside the team.
