Managing Organisational Culture and Change[edit]

I was unable to find an article that covers managing culture and change in an organisation and explains its important and how difficult it is to change culture. Any suggestions on an article that covers this topic?

If not, would it be useful to create an article that explains managing organisational culture and change and has quotes like the ones below?

The most frequently cited reason for failure was neglecting to address organisational culture (Cameron 1997) <ref>Cameron, Kim S. “Techniques for Making Organizations Effective: Some Popular Approaches.” In Daniel Druckman, Jerome E. Singer, and Harold Van Cott (eds.), Enhancing Organizational Performance. Washington, D.C.: National Academies Press, 1997</ref>

“70% of all major change efforts fail” - Dr. John Kotter, 1995 <ref>Kotter’s 8 step Organisational Change Model</ref>

“Culture influences leadership style more than any other factor” - Harvard Business Review, 2005 <ref></ref>

Family businesses[edit]

Category:Family businesses was deleted in a 2011 CfD on the grounds that the inclusion criteria were undefined and thus too subjective. That category reemerged in 2017 but as a shadow of its former self, indeed excluding the vast majority of the best-known family businesses from Tata Sons to S.C. Johnson & Son to Koç Holding. Rather than submit it for speedy deletion, I thought it would be best to ask here: is it worth keeping or not? Different firms might be known as family businesses for different reasons (e.g. ownership vs. control), so a list would arguably be superior, because it can incorporate citations. If kept, we will need to define an appropriate scope, particularly as the degree of family ownership or control is sometimes debatable (e.g. Hyundai Group). -- choster (talk) 23:05, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Lee Fixel[edit]

Hello! I've submitted a request to update the Early life and education section of the Lee Fixel article as part of my work with Beutler Ink. Lee Fixel is an American venture capitalist and investor and I'm hoping to update some straightforward biographical information. You can view my full request here, which seeks to improve flow and fix a few inaccurate details. Will someone please review this request? Given my COI, I'm asking independent editors to confirm accuracy, neutrality, and verifiability. I'll happily address any questions or concerns that may arise. Thanks in advance!
