"culture eats strategy
--attributed to Peter Drucker--
So what is culture?
It's strategy's big sister. Culture shares with its younger sibling, Strategy, the way things really work around the household; what is truly valued by her parents. Once little sis, Strategy, understands the way things really work and what is truly valued, she can leverage that information and have big success with mom and pop.
Culture and Strategy make a great team.

Culture, as defined by culture experts, WorkXO, is,"The collection of words, actions, thoughts, and artifacts that clarify and reinforce what is truly valued in a organization."
And what is truly valued, is often not the values written on your wall in the mailroom. It's what's modeled and rewarded by your leaders.
