The Culture of Elitism

CaseInterview.com

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the cult/culture of elitism. Over the last 15 years, I’ve systematically moved away from this culture. I’ve found the elitism culture far too limiting. If you’re successful within the culture, you overlook the opportunities to connect with, learn from, and befriend people who don’t fit the traditional “elite” criteria.

Culture vs Strategy

Tom Spencer

Culture is about who you are, and why you do things. Culture is arguably more important than strategy because, if you look at it over the lifetime of a product or an organisation, the culture is the only thing that will really matter.

The Blame-Oriented Corporate Culture

CaseInterview.com

In many company cultures (and in many family, marriage or parent/child relationship cultures), the first order of business is to decide whom to blame. Third, having blame be a part of the culture engenders fear. I firmly believe a solutions-oriented corporate culture outperforms the "blame first" culture in the long run. If your company has a "blame first" culture, that doesn't mean you have to use that approach within your department.
