Culture does not create behavior


By Managing Behavior, you Create a Performing Culture

From Strategy to Delivery

Making Decisions Count

Why Your Core Values Matter in Shaping Corporate Culture

Business Perspective Blog Posts

  • 1. Culture is shaped by behavior, and behavior is created by personal and corporate values. 
  • 2. These core personal and corporate values, used to make all decisions within a business, are defined by the Senior Executive team. 
  • 3. In practice, these values, applied to every decision made, enforces Executive Intent throughout an organization.


Using principles as a driver of change is the opposite of the vast majority of business change efforts, where technology, standards, or management dictates attempt to drive change. Change can only be effectively delivered through a change of behavior, and this behavior is defined through Executive Intent.

“If only everyone worked together effectively, we would be so much more successful.”

Unique Approach – Consistent Success

We look at business in a totally different way. We don’t look at business as projects and budgets, but rather as a systemic inter-relationship of human behaviors – behavior, that when understood, can be managed to radically change how you work, optimizing the performance. Critical thinking and the decisions making process are greatly enhanced when you have a consistent value based framework to facilitate consistency in those decisions. 

Strategy execution through executive intent

We avoid being involved in “fire-fighting”, but preferably, building “sprinkler systems”. Rather than focus on the individual projects, we concentrate on identifying and improving the systemic, cultural, organizational, or behavioral characteristics that impede effective delivery of business value through information technology, leveraging your existing wealth of talent, and getting everyone making decisions for the same reasons and in line with core decision values.

Turning executive intent into action.
