The Black Box of IT with Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby and Jeppe Hedaa – Culture in Organisations

Other than conducting Harry and Meghan’s wedding… What does the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, have to say about culture in a multinational organisation?

For organisational culture experts: This is an interesting alternative perspective, looking at the impact of culture and performance in a complex organisation. The Archbishop of Canterbury talks about the whats, whens and hows of culture in the Anglican Church in 165 countries, speaking 2.000 languages in a 1.500 year old institution.

Key take-aways: Cultural change is slow and consensus driven. Multilanguage / International culture must be centered around core values but open to diversity in less important cultural areas. Culture is a main driver of performance and longevity.
