New Culture - Transformation.

For companies that have already internalised the awareness and motivation needed to address cultural transformation and want to take action by implementing new ways of doing and interacting with each other. It takes constant practice to integrate the changes and consolidate new skills, processes and structures; a network of people to act as agents of change; and ongoing reinforcement over time to sustain the changes without falling back into old habits.
