We are drawing inspiration from Paul Bate’s seminal work, “Strategies for Cultural Change,” in which he challenges traditional views of organisational culture, urging us to see it not just as an attribute an organisation has, but as the very essence. As we explore his insights, we will unravel the complexities of ‘thinking culturally’ about organisations and discuss practical strategies for enacting meaningful and sustainable cultural change. We navigate the intricate pathways of altering the very core of an organisation’s identity.
