ABSTRACT
The author's encounter with cultural change occurred while working for one of the big five consultancies in the early 1990's, but she didn't know she was being culturally changed. Her role was to help people change the way they worked and be more effective— that is, to learn to work with technology. This was when the meaning of cultural change first became apparent to her. To find an understanding of cultural change, the author conducted her own highly unscientific study, by asking friends, peers and colleagues. Corporate culture is about changing the way people work and the way they behave towards one another.
