Why cultureSCAN?

If you want to have a look at the demo site first click here.

Culture as reflected in the everyday experiences, motivations, and perspectives of your employees.


How is your culture being reflected in your employees everyday experiences and observations? It’s not only the fragments of conversations your employees are sharing that are critical in making sense of your culture, its the feelings, motivations, and perspectives that are underlying such experiences. The cultureSCAN service is built on a patented form of questioning that allows respondents to add such layers of meaning to their day to day work experiences. These layers of meaning, together with workplace experiences, reveal insights into behavioural patterns and underlying assumptions that reflect an organization’s culture.

Edgar Schein suggests in his highly acclaimed book Organizational Culture and Leadership – “…any group with a stable membership and history of shared learning will have developed some level of culture…”.  It is precisely this shared learning and experiential foundation that Cognitive Edge’s cultureSCAN service has been designed to illuminate.

Take a look at how this demonstration cultureSCAN site empowers employees to make sense of their day to day experiences. As respondents share more and more experiences, patterns reflecting the organization’s culture begin to form.  This report sample gives you a sense of the way patterns start to emerge.
