Organisational culture was first theorised in the 1940’s. In the 1970’s Peter Drucker famously stated that “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”, but not until the 1980’s did the concept become more widely recognised. Today, ‘culture’ is a word readily associated with organisational success or failure. From boardrooms to the factory floor, employees at all levels are increasingly aware that their organisation has its own culture. This culture will significantly impact their choices, productivity, performance and well-being. To ignore it would be burying one’s head in the sand.

Culture is now one of the leading reasons why staff leave their current role, as well as key reason in attracting new talent. But it’s more than that. Culture is a predictor of success (or failure). The best way to predict the future is to create it. In the long-term, organisations with high performing cultures out-perform their competitors in every demonstrable measurement!

Culture impacts performance:

  • A bad system will always beat a good person. What shapes a bad system?
  • Historic financial performance is a lag indicator. Is there a lead indicator for future performance?
  • What drives innovation and creativity?
  • What encourages and harnesses psychological safety?
  • Why do some teams add up to be greater than the sum of their parts, while others add up to less?
  • What creates teams with a high learning velocity? (how quickly a team improves its performance in a new skill or environment)
  • Why does a team or organisation consistently fail?
  • Talented staff do not wish to waste the prime years of their careers. What do they look for in an organisation to showcase their skills, capabilities and release their potential?
  • Leadership teams are ultimately responsible for their organisations.


Culture is serious business and hope is not a strategy. Culture is not an area that can afford meaningless anecdotes, unvalidated questionnaires, or the latest fad. It requires professional measurement, tangible results, purposeful data and clear action planning. Most of all it requires the ability to improve and drive an organisation’s performance.

SmartHR, in partnership with the global leading instruments, can unlock your organisation’s potential to allow you to achieve the high-performing culture your business needs.
