Organization's culture is the sum of belief and behaviors of all employees. It is built on values and drives Organizational effectiveness through Competitive advantage. The visible part of cultural iceberg drives us to think what we see and believe in our Organization constitutes the culture. There is also big portion of cultural iceberg that is not visible to the employees that drives the hard reality.

Culture is a soft concept and like strategy it cannot be copied. Is there a way to measure culture? If not, then how do we say whether particular culture is good or bad? As an individual how often do we change our behavior to adapt to a new situation? If changing one’s behavior is tough, then how difficult is to change behavior of big Organization?

Come join me to visualize and understand a world of culture delivered to you in a capsule. You would not only multiply your knowledge but will go home with resonating thoughts that would drive you to do more of cultural transformation at work place!!

    I like these aspects of the submission, and they should be retained:

    • Topic is good
    • Content and flow looks decent

    I think the submission could be improved by:

    • Reduce the text - I feel there is too much text on several slides and some of that could be difficult to read in a conference setting. Also, there is too much on some slides. Please consider simplifying some heavy slides and reducing text on other slides, otherwise I fear you may lose your audience.

      Hi Sanjay, 

      Thank you for your feedback. The slideshare deck doesn't cover the animation aspect and hence there is a common feel on too much content.

      Regardless, I started to review the text and revamp in such a way that the audience is engaged.

      Thanks a ton again !

      Hi Madeeha,

      Thank you for your response. The winning team's framework is based on the rule of thumb 'If an Organization works towards the welfare of it’s employees, the employees will have a growth mindset'.

      This framework explores different areas/ aspects  the Organization has to focus to create winning teams. This is more of inspect and adapt at team level to drive cultural transformation. I have done this research (WIP) in my company.


      I have updated Time limits for all, thank you for the suggestion.
