Musing on Organizational Culture

It's often true that a strong organizational culture is often an impediment to change , so what leaders in orhganizations need to think about, is the question:

How do we build the ability to change into the culture of the organization?

And as a good friend of mine never tires of reminding us, culture is not the way we like to think we should be, but the way we actually are ! The difference is one of "espoused values" and "values in use" !!
