CULTURAL OPERATING SYSTEM
What is Cultural Operating System (COS)?
Considering how much we depend on our gadgets and toys for our daily musings, the phrase operating system is very familiar. It is a set of rules that governs how those gadgets work, and it is the key to how they can perform the tasks that they are set for.
This also applies to organisations who strive to become successful at what they do. Cultural Operating System is a phrase used to describe a set of rules that guide the behaviour of employees when they enter high-stakes meeting, react to abrupt organisational changes, or deciding what they do with discretionary time. It is also worth noting that unlike electrical operating system, that relies on written rules, COS is driven by a combination of both written and unwritten rules.
Why is COS Important?
COS can be a crucial determinant of an organisation's success. Leaders who invest in fostering a potent cultural system that enables their organisational strategy reap daily rewards for their investment. On the other hand, CEOs who have failed to instill a productive COS will allow unwritten rules to fill the void, creating a disruptive internal force.
Studies have suggested that a well-designed COS will be responsible for 400 to 500 percent increase in revenue, income and share price growth when compared with organisations with less effective COS. This also leads to a reduction of workplace occupational, health and safety incidents.
