Pints, Pizza, & PDUs – A Case Study in Organizational Culture Change

Power Skills


"Culture eats strategy for breakfast” is a well-known statement by Peter Drucker. Some organizations build a specific culture fit-for-purpose from their start. Other times, companies find they either do not have a coherent culture or have one that no longer serves the needs of the business. This session explores the basics of organizational culture and change management. A case study of a multi-billion euro business illustrates how the two topics can be effectively employed to create business value and improve employee experience.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the basics of organizational culture
  2. Review the fundamentals of organizational change management
  3. Learn from a case study of Royal Philips
