Cultural Transformation

Cultural Transformation

A major chemical company needed to shift their culture to one that would allow for sustained innovation by moving from a hierarchical structure to high-performance teams. Idea Connection Systems® facilitated this through transformational leadership development, change partners, training and a common lexicon, and coaching. As a result, there was a 150% increase in employee productivity, a healthy average percent growth of earnings before taxes in the four years that followed, and the senior management publicly acknowledging the change in leadership and culture as central to these results.

Culture Formation

Culture Formation and Transformation

A “built to last” culture was needed for the merging of six global pharmaceutical conglomerates into Aventis Pharmaceuticals. Idea Connection Systems® created a process roadmap that fostered systemic change and a common culture, guided the defining of the organizations core purpose, core values and “Big Hairy Audacious Goal”. Following the roadmap, Aventis achieved a 27% growth in annual sales, achieved the highest annual growth performance of a N.A. pharmaceutical company. They were rated the best New Jersey employer, recognized as one of the top 100 companies for women by Working Women’s Magazine, and employee satisfaction survey results in 2002 reflected very high employee satisfaction.
