Martin Stewart-Weeks gave a presentation to the New Media Group, Victorian Government entitled Getting Under the Skin of Government 2.0 – Issues, Insights and Implications
Martin’s presentation, similar to the Australia’s Gov 2.0 Taskforce Report and the reports on innovation in the Australian Public Service and the work of the Reform Group highlighted the need to change organisational culture and manage change. All good.
However, most agencies or departments take a top down approach to changing culture and do not use social media to build organisational culture with their people.
In my experience an entire industry has built up around culture and engagement surveys and, as a result, our HR/OD areas are not up to the task of the sort of changes needed. Possibly even resistant.
Here is something I put together on this very issue >>> Culture Critique. Also available on Slideshare
