Company Culture Alignment

Creating a Competitive Advantage

Building a successful corporate culture has become the most significant source of competitive advantage and brand differentiation in business today. The CTW team has expertise in guiding our clients to assess their values and go beyond a list of words to values that everyone can remember, meaningful values that can be observed through their behaviors. Values-driven companies are the most successful companies. Why?

Strong adaptive cultures based on shared values outperformed other companies by a significant margin. They also found that these companies had job creation rates seven times higher, stock prices that grew 12 times faster, and profit performance that was 750 times higher than companies that did not have shared values and adaptive cultures.

What Are Values and Why Are They Important?

Values are deeply held principles that people hold or adhere to when making decisions. Individuals express their values though their behaviors. Organizations express their values through their working culture. Research shows that there is a strong link between financial performance and the alignment of an organization’s operating values to the employees’ personal values. Who you are and what you stand for is becoming just as important as the quality of products and services you provide.

Measurement Matters

Traditionally, intangibles such as culture and values have been difficult to measure and, therefore, have not been included as part of the business manager’s scorecard or the dashboard of key performance indicators.

An innovative set of assessments that map the values of individuals and organizations was developed called the Cultural Transformation Tools (CTT).
