“If there is no agreement about the fundamentals, it is pointless making plans together.”
Organisational culture within the meaning of process consulting is the critical philosophical basis for learning and development in an organisational context, since much of what the consultant does in helping an organisation can be reduced to a single central assumption: “You can only help a human system to help itself. (…) In the final instance therefore, the aim of process consulting is to build up an effective helping relationship.” Edgar H. Schein
Introducing a process of change means recognising corporate culture and using this culture as a framework for the stages within a process of change.
Supporting complex processes of change often means striking a balance between change and the status quo: consciously changing some elements of corporate culture while stabilising others.
Within this process, managers take on a pioneering function. Their thoughts and actions offer a directional framework for staff, and guarantee reliable processes and relationships.
