Culture vs. Control

The Performance Improvement Blog

The dust has settled a bit on the working-from-home issue which was stirred up about a month ago when Yahoo's 11,500 employees received an email from the HR department putting an end to “work-from-home arrangements” throughout the company. Apparently, Marissa Mayer, the new CEO of Yahoo, is trying to change a culture that had lost the nimbleness and creativity that it needs in order to compete in the world today.

Culture Change is More Than Skin Deep

The Performance Improvement Blog

Marissa Mayer , new CEO of Yahoo, received notoriety recently when she instituted a new policy that ended employees working from home. While each of these leaders, from the Vatican to Yahoo to Dynergy, recognizes that culture change is essential to the future success of their organizations, they would be well served to recognize also the complexity of organizational culture and the necessity of going beyond symbols and artifacts.

The recent story of Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo, struck me as an interesting case. Both of these would be good outcomes for Yahoo. In thinking about how organizations can ‘learn’, it strikes me that everyone needs to be simultaneously learning and teaching. How does that happen?
