Culture Shift

Culture provides the fuel that enables talent to execute your marketing strategies successfully.

Customer-centric capabilities

  • Companies with aligned cultures beat the market index by 19%. Companies lacking this posted returns 44% lower.


  • 50% of M&As fail. Incompatible culture is the top reason for failure.
  • 90% of successful M&As addressed culture. This was carried out in only 33% of the unsuccessful deals.


  • Over 40% of new employees will fail within 18 months. 89% of those are due to attitudes / behaviors that don’t fit the culture.
