Changing Organization Cultures: What is the Critical Element to Start?

When you study the political culture of a country for instance, USSR from Tsarist Russia it took a revolution to change a culture. The only thing that revolutionaries forget is the innate culture of people. It never goes away completely.
Same with corporate culture. If the change causes overall improvement for the majority, then the culture change will become the more permanent culture. If over time the changed culture becomes just as bad as the previous, then a new revolution will come and make another adjustment.
Some political idealogs will use subtle changes in making the culture change more tolerable to the masses. That takes lots of time and patience, and most don't want to take the time.

The Practical Side of Organization Culture

On the practical side, I find it useful to have an explicit list of behavioural values, communicate and discuss these with employees and amend them if needed. Then, through 360 degree appraisal and performance coaching, check and reward employees who live up to the values and have tough talks with those who don't. That is all you have to do but be prepared to hold the course for a couple of years.
