Culture vs Strategy in Performance

Reading time: 1 min

A lecture I recently attended noted the following:

Organisational culture is x8 more influential than strategy in performance variance.

Perhaps this demonstrates that attitude towards studying is more important than the strategy of studying.

Studies have indicated that some study methods are more time-effective than others at committing items to memory. I wonder if studies have been done to indicate any cause or correlation between attitude towards academics and academic outcome. I'd like to think there is and I haven't looked them up yet.

I would like to think attitude is important in success in life as well.


Upon further inspection of the x8 statistic, I couldn't find a source to back it up. Brilliant.

Did a bit of reading on this "Corporate culture and organizational performance"; don't think it discusses strategy though.
