Developing Your Enterprise 4.0 –

What has Organisation Culture Got To Do With It?


What's Culture got to do with Enterprise 4.0?

If you are looking to scale up or scale out your start-up or enterprise, what’s culture got to do with it? And what about for Enterprise 4.0 (described as an organisation that is agile, adaptable to unpredictable changes, leverages technology) – is it still relevant? ….

If we were to define Enterprise 4.0 as the next generation enterprise that can successfully scale up in operation and scale out beyond its place of origin in a fast-evolving business environment characterised by greater complexity, ambiguity and unpredictability, what role does organisation culture play? Would the adage of “culture eats strategy for breakfast” still apply? What can leaders do to ready themselves and teams to navigate into the future?
