Culture and Contemporary Organizations II: Shaping Organizational Culture

Off campus

Howe School Alliance for Technology Management (HSATM)
ROUNDTABLE

Organizational culture — the shared assumptions, values and beliefs that lead to specific behavioral norms among organizational members — is a product of such factors as history, management style, product, market, technology, strategy, type of employees, etc. (after Needle, 2004). The underlying culture of the organization affects the way people and groups interact with each other, and exerts profound impacts, positive and negative, upon organizational attitudes and performance in many areas — ethics, governance, safety, innovation, response to change, risk management, human resources, customer service, etc.

It’s been some time  since the Alliance has dealt with the impact of culture on organizations. The May Roundtable, the first of several that will revisit this important issue, dealt with the effect of culture on innovation. The July Roundtable will focus on tools and models that can help us identify and describe the project, program and organizational cultures that we are a part of. We’ll see how using such models can help us communicate what is working in a culture and what needs to change. We’ll also consider how they can help develop a more complete understanding of our own role and impact on the cultures we belong to.  

Some of the key questions we’ll address include:

  • What are some ways to define and describe the cultures you are part of?

  • What kinds of assumptions do you and others make about your culture?  How do those assumptions shape what you and others do?

  • How can you develop a deeper appreciation for your own role (for better and for worse) in sustaining and shaping your organization’s culture?

  • How might you leverage your existing culture to drive change, improve performance and make work more engaging?

We are inviting several participants to come prepared to share some information about their organization’s culture. If you’d like to, bring with you something you feel is most telling about the culture you are a part of (an artifact of your culture) — a picture, a story, a policy, a product, technology or something else. Be ready to share with others what the artifact means; what belief or value it exemplifies; if/how it might be related to an underlying cultural assumption that is hard to see or question.

Co-facilitators for the July Roundtable will be Steve Jacobs, Alliance Senior Associate, and Peter Dominick, Industry Associate Professor at the Howe School. This and subesequent meetings will provide forums for sharing Partner experiences, tools, successful methods and challenges in trying to change culture — and improve performance — within their organizations.

The Roundtable will be hosted by Infineum.

NYCRIN I-CorpsThe NYC Regional Innovation Node (NYCRIN) teaches the Innovation Corps (I-Corps) course using the Lean Launchpad curriculum based on Steve Blank’s Customer Development methodology and Alex Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas. As such, it demands that teams ‘Get out of the Building’, and spend the majority of their time talking to potential customers to discover how their technology could effectively ‘solve’ customers’ unmet needs or pain points. This program not only helps teams commercialize their specific research, but also teaches researchers how to approach their work by thinking about market needs earlier in the process. 

  • Lean LaunchPad is a hands-on program that immerses academic teams in testing their business model hypotheses outside the classroom. Inside the classroom, it deliberately trades off lecture time for student/teaching team interaction
  • Lean LaunchPad uses the Customer Development process and the Business Model Canvas to collapse the infinite possibilities of a startup into a solvable problem 
  • The online lectures (week 2-7) are delivered through Udacity

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The team must be from a university within New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or Connecticut
  • The technology must be at the proof-of-concept stage
  • The technology can be funded by any government agency but must be disclosed to the university’s Tech Transfer Office (TTO)
  • The team composition should include at least one EL, an IM, and the technology’s PI
    1. The Entrepreneurial Lead (EL) could be a post-doctoral scholar, graduate, or other student with relevant knowledge of the technology and a deep commitment to investigating the commercial landscape surrounding the innovation
    2. The I-Corps Mentor (IM) will typically be an experienced or emerging entrepreneur who operates in proximity to the institution and is experienced in transitioning technology out of academic labs
    3. The Principal Investigator (PI) must have disclosed the technology IP to the TTO and may or may not be actively involved in the team
