How production culture is changing

An operational manual for the management of corporate change provides useful interpretations and tools for entrepreneurs and managers

  

When facing change, one needs new tools and updated analytical methods. In other words, it is important to always reassess the contents of the toolbox used by entrepreneurs and their managers. This is why reading the revised and updated edition of Culture d’impresa. Come affrontare con successo le transizioni e i cambiamenti organizzativi (The corporate culture survival guide: culture, change, leadership), a manual written collaboratively by Edgar and Peter Schein, is very useful.

The book includes stories and practical corporate management tools, which have the goal of helping those individuals who deal with managing change, especially during the stage that involves the evaluation of existing corporate cultures. With new case studies and a greater focus on key management skills, this manual offers readers a wealth of knowledge, useful when critically thinking about renewing production culture.

The book starts by describing the main features characterising those who have to govern change, as well as the real meaning of concepts related to change, leadership and culture. Once these basic notions have been clarified and established, the two authors attempt to explain the structure of modern corporate culture itself and, after a further section, they finally succeed in outlining how production methods and their related cultural paradigms are shifting, providing – at this juncture – new intervention tools. Particular attention is paid to the social relationships existing within a company, as well as to technical aspects, so that what emerges from this book is an awareness of how important it is to care for people.

Thus, the authors succeed in perfectly explaining how change happens in practice, identifying what needs to be altered within a fully or partially disfunctional organisation culture.

Edgar and Peter Schein’s work is a good guide to refer to in order to move past that complex, and often tortuous, interval of time that will nonetheless lead a company to change, both internally and externally.
