Regardless of the strategy, a company cannot achieve success without a healthy organization. Especially with an increasing pressure to globalize in order to remain competitive in today’s global market place, companies face various challenges such as management of culturally diverse people, development of Japanese global leaders who will shine outside of Japan, and global permeation of the corporate values.
However, organizational challenges are complex and require holistic solutions. While systems and rules could be considered “hard measures,” “soft measures” would include ways of communicating in the workplace and fostering trust. Based on our extensive OD experience, we know the best approach to affecting change is not to simply change the existing system, but to improve the soft measures that drive that system.
