Transcript of Scytl Culture
We’re a team, not a family. We’re like a pro sports team, not a kid’s recreational team

Effective strategic management starts with leadership.

values are communicated

flexibility and willingness

Culture and values
Strategy development is not a "cookbook" process. It is challenging, heuristic task that requires strategic thinking.
Stategic thinking and planning
A leader leads by example, whether he intends to or not (Author Unknown)
To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart (Thomas Watson)
Alignment refers to strategic alignment, that is, the degree to which the organization's people and resources are focused on the strategy. The opposite of alignment is "chaos", where managers, programs and projects are aiming at different goals, leading to wasted energy, delays, conflict and confusion.
performance metrics or measures, managers are "flying blind". Strategic performance measures are aligned with the strategic plan.
Helps the organitation to see if the focus on its strategic vision, plans and iniciatives are well maintained.
Without metrics, managers are only caretakers. (Jac Fitz-Enz)
If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
Antoine De Saint-Exupery, Author of The Little Prince

Act always in Scytl’s Best Interest!
Minimal cross-functional meetings except to get aligned on goals and Expense only what you would otherwise not spend, and is worthwhile for work.
Travel as you would if it were your own money.
Take from Scytl only when it is inefficient to not take, and inconsequential “taking” means, for example, printing personal documents at work or making personal calls on work phone: inconsequential and inefficient to avoid.

31 % Neutral/Neither agree nor disagree
Excellence in your functional area is not as important as the ability to attract, inspire (better than motivating) and keeping great people is key!
“The challenge of leadership is to be strong but not rude; be kind but not weak; be bold but not a bully; be thoughtful but not lazy; be humble but not timid; be proud but not arrogant; have humor but not without folly”.
Our goal, should be getting at least 80% the team on agreement with that statement
