Given the government cuts organisational culture in UK Further Education is an important issue today. This report looks at some of the similarities and differences in culture across various types of education institutions, as well as other companies and organisations. We also include extracts and ideas from experts in culture and psychology to provide some ideas that College Senior Managers & HR Departments might want to discuss and explore further.
I was delighted with the positive feedback about this article from people who know a lot about establishing great cultures; people like Mike Feinberg (CEO of KIPP), Jay Matthews (Author of “Work Hard. Be Nice”), John Allan Hattie (Director of the Melbourne Education Research Institute) and Tony Hsieh (CEO of Zappos).
