Increased Effectiveness through Intentionally Designed Culture

Intentionally Designed Culture (IDC) is the systematic approach to identifying, effecting, and tracking the necessary behavioral changes in an organization. IDC starts out by classifying the type of behavior that an organization exhibits and then plans out a gradual introduction of key concepts necessary to bring the organization to a point where it will exhibit trust, accountability, and substantial reuse - which leads to dramatically increased performance.

Intentionally Designed Culture is a repeatable, formal process to effect specific changes in the beliefs and behaviors of an organization. IDC provides a set of quantitative measures for tracking progress, ready-to-use solutions to common problems, and a community-based ground-up approach for driving positive changes throughout an organization.
