Culture Eats Strategy for Lunch I have heard this many times. I have experienced it as well. But I want to spend some time discussing this idea and maybe foster the idea that Culture and Strategy do not need to be mutually exclusive.
So what are these two terms? Culture is the touchy feely stuff. It is not visible to the naked eye but creates the glue that holds an organization together or the sandpaper that wears it down. Strategy is committed to writing more often than not. It comprises the mission, vision and goals of an organization.
Both are critically important to the success of your business and I wanted to share some thoughts that might resonate not only to owners or management but also the rank and file or stakeholders in the success from top to bottom.
