Building Five Cultures in One Organization

Andy Freire, Axialent

After discussing his five archetypal organizational cultures, Andy Friere, Co-founder and CEO of Axialent, clarifies that while ultimately an organization wants to have each of the five cultural archetypes, the way to achieve this balance is to develop one archetype at a time over a period of years. The five cultural archetypes that Friere describes include: 1) Achievement, 2) Innovation, 3) One team, 4) People-first or 5) Customer-focused.
