How organisational culture works, without an office - Jennifer Howard-Grenville

We speak to Jennifer Howard-Grenville, Diageo Professor in Organisation Studies, at the Cambridge Judge Business School. 

This is a fascinating conversation, we look at organisational culture through an 800 year old lens, by examining how Cambridge University sustains and conveys a culture. 

Jennifer debunks the myths about organisation culture and explains how organisational culture is more than a mere “statement of values” but instead reflects the practices and expectations of people working together.

We also discuss what the future of work might look like post Covid-19 and how organisations and leaders can maintain a culture after the shift to remote working 

We look at organisational culture through an 800 year old lens, when we discuss how Cambridge University conveys and sustains a culture.  

Jennifer debunks the myths about organisation culture and explains how it can be broken down into practices and beliefs, rather than physical environments and rituals.
