Shape your corporate culture and put it into action to achieve your goals

1. Evaluate your corporate culture

Why don't you start by taking stock of your corporate culture? What is its clarity, its strength, its degree of use? To what extent is it lived as a reality? Are there any major inconsistencies that need to be corrected as a priority?

This can take the form of a simple survey of your teams, a day of taking stock of the Comex, a diagnosis or a more in-depth audit.

It can also involve comparing corporate cultures, for example in the context of an acquisition. 

Or to make a diagnosis of the company's ability to develop.
