How a restructure affects culture.

Most culture change programmes begin with a company developing new values and cascading them down the organization. Employees usually respond positively to new values and find them exciting. Within the space of a year, executives are delighted by how they see their culture has changed. Then they introduce a change in systems. To make the systems work, they change structures and roles. Employees under stress, revert to their old behaviours. All the work done in a culture change is lost.
