When common values are shared by a group there is a collective sense of purpose and cohesiveness. It is the same with organizations. Values and Principles help to identify the culture that an organization establishes for how its employees will operate. They must be associated with the behaviours and actions that employees will demonstrate which identifies that they act and behave in a manner which respects and upholds these Values and Principles. Employees must therefore understand what actions are necessary for them to successfully fit into the culture of the organization.
All levels of employees have a responsibility to understand the organization’s values and principles and to demonstrate them in their day-to-day actions and interactions.
Business Improvement Architects works with organizations to develop their Values and Principles. Our comprehensive process will help you to make them actionable-by also helping to identify the behaviours and actions that are necessary to "live" these values, so that they do not merely sit on a wall as something to read.
