Over 15 years we have worked on a number of cultural transformation projects and used a number of culture frameworks. We found that:
We therefore created Culture Impact as a simple, pragmatic and understandable framework to culture measurement. These areas are informed by the research of Richard Barrett, Dr Ian Macdonald and Carolyn Taylor and from our own experience of culture transformation projects.
Culture Impact is a flexible framework which can incorporate other areas of focus.

Culture Impact is able to include additional culture levers which are relevant to your organisation.
