Culture Moves: Organizational Change and Performance

Advanced Management Workshop – Exclusive for C – Level
With renowned Associate Professor Spencer Harrison | Europe Campus | INSEAD

How Onboarding, Outboarding, and Inboarding Influence Organizational Change and Performance

Mark your calendar: 27 and 28 August 2020

Plan your trip: Hotel San Martin in the heart of the Goriška Brda, Slovenia

With positive organizational change you will learn how to find pockets of “positive cultural deviancy”.



Organizational culture is important.
Strong culture can increase net income by 765% over ten years.
Culture is a double edged sword: it provides an organization with a shared set of values which provides a sense of stability while at the same time this stability can limit change and adaptation.


In a format of an interactive and engaging learning experience through the insights from Design Thinking and research on positive organizational change.



Building a toolkit that you will use to map your organizational culture and how you can change with new set of assumptions. Rather than thinking of change as a top-down response to an urgent external threat, we will explore change as a conversation between all layers of the organization to locate internally the most exciting, energizing ideas that already exist in the culture.


It is no longer a debate. Data clearly shows that organizations that get culture right, perform better. But that doesn’t make managing culture easy. Indeed, data shows that strong cultures lead to better performance but also hamper change. And change-focused cultures lead to adaptation but lessen commitment. With all these paradoxes in play, most executives feel powerless to impact culture and preferring to wait for the CEO to simply send out an announcement or authorize a “refresh.” Professor Harrison outlines a theory of “how culture moves” inside and outside of organizations to make sense of these paradoxes. He also reveals the “culture moves” that managers at all levels of the organization can make to map, revitalize, and nurture organizational culture.
