Your team culture becomes your #1 priority!
As the focus shifts from product to humans.
1. Organizational structures change.
2. Innovation cycles must increase, as the
life period of companies decreases massively.
1990 < 60 years
2021 < 10 years
2030 < 3 years (?)
WHAT DOES IT
MEAN FOR ME?
To innovate & succeed in dynamic structures, you need to build a culture of trust.
You build a culture of trust by spending a significant amount of time & money in creating clear structures & experiences to foster strong relationships.
Culture design has to be part of your daily job and #1 priority.
HOW DO YOU DESIGN CULTURE?
We have identified 30+ "culture-building elements" that define the quality of your team/company culture.
1. These are differentiated between "direction / structure" & "behavior / routine" elements.
2. We have created frameworks for each of these elements to help you design a great experience for your employees based on safety, achievement & growth.
3. The better the employee experience, the better your culture. But an incoherence between what is written & what is lived, makes or breaks culture.
4. In collaboration with you, we identify which of these elements are existing, missing, or failing and then improve/create the elements & the experiences around them.
5. Underneath you'll find some examples of the 30+ culture-building elements:
BEHAVIOR / ROUTINE ELEMENT
OUR PURPOSE IS WHAT MOTIVATES ME DAILY TO DO GREAT WORK.
OUR VALUES ARE NOT MATCHING WITH THE DAILY ACTIONS OF THE LEADERSHIP.
REGULAR TEAM MEETINGS
REGULAR PROJECT REVIEW MEETINGS
REGULAR CAREER / GROWTH SESSIONS
REGULAR MOMENTS OF CELEBRATION
ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES ARE NOT 100% CLEAR, LEADING TO CONFLICT & CONFUSION .
OUR REGULAR TEAM MEETINGS GIVE ME A SENSE OF BELONGING.
HOW DO I EXPERIENCE THIS ELEMENT IN DAILY LIFE?
REGULAR FEEDBACK MEETINGS
THE FEEDBACK TALKS HELP ME GROW & FEEL A SENSE OF ACHIEVEMENT.

WHAT DO OTHERS
SAY ABOUT YOU?
"Working with Eva and Karim totally changed how we work and relate with each other at l'atelier. The close, honest, personal accompaniment and advice were key to creating and strengthening our culture and make our office more professional, efficient, and respectful. They gave us clarity, objectivity and organized our ideas, objectives, and the team itself, while learning, having fun, and deepening our relations."
Liza Murlender (Argentina),
Psychologist & Culture Designer,
“Our goal was to define and formalize our company values. Bringing in Eva-Maria & Karim from culturedesign.org as external consultants in this process has turned out to be a good decision. They came in with deep curiosity and passion & customized the process to our needs at Studydrive. We felt guided and supported and are very satisfied with the result”.
Philipp Mackeprang (Germany),
Founder and former CEO,
Eva, Karim, and their team helped our team gain an understanding of how our company culture could be shaped in a conscious rather than accidental manner. Through a series of conversations, workshops, and surveys, we explored many of the things that are often overlooked because they’re not transparent, such as all the roles we carry that are both within and outside of our job description. As a result of their work, we now have a company culture team that is shaping the company and are hiring a couple of people to take on some of those roles. Working with them had a visible positive impact on our team, and my only wish is that we could have worked with them for longer!
Mar High (Germany/USA),
Director of Product Design,
