Culture Change Planner: A systematic Approach to Cultivating Supportive Environments at Work, at Home, and in the Community
By Judd Allen, Ph.D.

Cultural influences such as norms, traditions, modeling, and shared values are all around us. Cultural influences shape attitudes and behavior at work, at home and in our communities. These influences often form invisible barriers to progress. When we set out to achieve group or individual goals, we can either align cultural influences, or we must engage in an endless battle to succeed in spite of cultural influences.

Culture change requires an organized approach because cultures are complex webs of social influences. The Culture Change Planner is a step-by-step guide to planning and implementing culture change. It equips you for success with a field-tested and systematic approach that has been applied in businesses, communities, educational institutions and government organizations for more than 60 years. The culture change process can be adapted to achieve a broad range of health and productivity goals at work, at home and in the community. Special features include time-tested strategies, key design questions, and case studies drawn from more than 1,000 projects.
