ABSTRACT
In this article, Philip Atkinson and Dara Clarke suggest that rapid business performance can be achieved only through carefully crafting a strong 'cultural' foundation upon which to build powerful processes and systems. Culture and systems have to be carefully integrated to ensure that they support each other in terms of achieving the organisation's strategic mission. Further, they outline the core steps to be taken to ensure culture and systems are harmoniously brought together to create a new high performing business.
