It is universally recognised that corporate culture is one of the most critical levers for the long-term sustainability of any organisation. Yet, culture is the one element that most organisations fail to empirically measure and track and therefore they underutilise this important lever. Leaders have been reliant on lagging qualitative measures (engagement surveys, sentiment surveys, individual interviews) assessing current sentiments or opinions, which tend to rise and fall quickly in response to transient business choices. In addition, leaders have been forced to build their cultural values frameworks based on personal hunches or by copying industry trends, without any evidence of whether these are the right values to drive the business outcomes that matter in their unique context.
Consequently, leaders get caught out by the wrong behaviours becoming dominant in their organisation, wasting vast resources on ineffective “culture interventions” that either bear no tangible benefits or, worse, have a detrimental impact on their business. In a world with ever-growing scrutiny of corporate culture from all stakeholders, CultureScope can help leaders to measure, understand, design and embed their desired culture with an unprecedented level of clarity and control.
CultureScope is a ground-breaking and scientifically validated approach to behavioural and cultural measurement. It is based on the largest ever behavioural research study over a 7-year period, with over 51,000 participants in 61 countries across 60 organisations and supported by 3 leading business schools. Furthermore, CultureScope was revalidated in late 2021. CultureScope quantifies the culture of an organisation using advanced diagnostics, by assessing individual and organisational behaviours (how do I behave and what do I observe around me) and linking these with organisations’ outcomes to provide predictive analytics, actionable insights and a roadmap to drive the organisation forward, reduce risk and generate sustainable value. The predictive analytics work in both directions; behaviours to outcomes and outcomes to behaviours.
CultureScope is an organisational culture assessment that enables your organisation to conduct a ‘gap analysis’ between desired and actual culture. Measuring and understanding the drivers that underpin organisational culture and identifying the behaviours that do or do not support your business strategy can unlock the full potential of your organisation.
Critically, CultureScope provides your organisation with insights into the behaviours that drive your desired business outcomes and gives you an evidence-based roadmap (using path analysis) to sustainable business success.
EXAMPLES OF CULTURESCOPE'S IMPACT
Using the Culture Scope and Talent Scope tools to build a profile of 'what good looks like' in this early stage business has helped us take a lot of risk out of making initial critical hires and has become a cost effective ongoing decision support tool in recruitment. Hani has been great to work with; ever flexible which is very important as we find our way and so much preferable to the strait jacket imposed by some of the larger consultancies. Applying this level of science and rigour to the hiring process is a no-brainer in our book.CEOInternet of Things start up
Whilst we commissioned CultureScope for a specific research project, we quickly realised the wide-ranging impact and uses of the model and are now using it for everything from defining our strategy for diversity and inclusion to assessing how we measure and communicate our performance and values behaviours. CultureScope has provided HSBC with a powerful new lens with which to view every aspect of its culture.HR DirectorHSBC
TeamScope devised a brilliant day for us as an Executive Leadership Team. Hani in Paul’s team is a veritable genius on team work and learning… and also at flying planes. The session absolutely met the brief we set. It was great for team work and genuinely the most memorable and impactful activity we have ever done. We learnt a lot about our strengths as a team (and as individuals), had fun and discovered just how quickly we can learn a new complex process and work together to deliver it. The debrief follow up session a few weeks later was really insightful too and perfectly timed. Would recommend it to anyone.Chief People OfficerMetro Bank
