DALLAS, March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wilson Perumal & Company today announced the launch of its new culture assessment tool, yardstyck™, available on March 3. This solution helps organizations identify traits in their company culture that make them susceptible to the growing risks and costs associated with the complexities of modern communication, competition, regulation, market globalization and technology.
The assessment tool will benchmark users' performances against those of high-reliability organizations.
The benefits of yardstyck™
WP&C helps corporate leaders realize that traditional management approaches that led to a "command and control" culture will not work in today's complex operating environment. Telling employees to "just do what you're told" won't work anymore. However, as assessing and understanding corporate culture on a deep level can be highly difficult, newer solutions were deemed critical for companies that wanted to step into the modern era of management.
The new yardstyck™ tool was created through WP&C's work with high-reliability organizations, including the U.S. Navy's nuclear submarine force. It enables rapid assessment of corporate culture to assist in identifying characteristics that increase risk, then empowers leaders to make swift moves toward mitigation.
"This is a game changer for leaders looking to take their safety performance to the next level," explained Chris Seifert, Partner, WP&C. "For the first time, leaders have a tool that will enable them to identify parts of their organization that have a culture that makes them susceptible to catastrophic failures."
The product and methodology can be used by enterprises in a range of industries, as the risks and costs of complexity have been felt by every sector from finance and housing to manufacturing and energy.
Webinars to accompany release
In conjunction with the release of the new yardstyck™ tool, WP&C will make a series of free webinars available to educate interested parties in the dangers and expenses of complexity. The webinar series will cover the connection between complexity and corporate culture management to the best practices of risk mitigation and attributes of successful high-reliability organizations.
