As the world of work evolves and changes, culture is a hot topic and an important focus area for companies going through a transformation. The revitalization of Microsoft under CEO Satya Nadella is one of the great business stories of the 21st Century. At its heart, it is a story of how to change a culture.
In this session, Carolyn Byer will share some of the key cultural changes Microsoft needed to make in order to adapt to a rapidly changing environment and reconnect with some of the founding principles that had powered its initial growth and made it such a dominant force in technology and business. This process emphasised learning and innovation and has built the culture on a growth mindset, obsessed with the customer, committed to diversity and inclusion and making a difference. This change has involved both clear decisive leadership from the top and change driven by employees. Gain a better understanding on how Microsoft has embarked on this transformation journey, what they learned about culture along the way, and the benefits the organization is already seeing.
