Peter Drucker is credited as the first to declare that, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast,” and, of course, he was right. That is to say, it doesn’t matter how elegant your plan for growth – your strategy – may be if your company culture won’t deliver. The good news is that Andi is a Ph.D. in anthropology who knows a thing or two about culture.
