Culture [ˈkʌl tʃər] : The behavior and practices that are characteristic of a particular social group or organization.
Culture - is all important!
It is the DNA of any organisation. It depicts how an organisations behaviours and practices are able to sustain performance.
Culture must be frequently assessed and actions taken to address any issues promptly. In many cases the best place to start any improvement initiatives is to take a snapshot of the prevailing culture.
