About this book

This book answers the question of how soft factors such as corporate cultures and individual and corporate values can be transparently steered. With its C4 management tool and reflecting the seven driving forces of corporate culture, the Values Cockpit is a powerful solution designed to steer all dimensions and processes of a company, pursuing a lean approach.

The book links strategic approaches on how to steer a company towards excellence with insights into the driving forces of human thoughts and actions. It subsequently introduces the Values Cockpit, which allows individual corporate cultures to be developed and controlled on the basis of a rational approach.

It has since become commonplace that, for the best companies in the world, it is their great corporate culture that sustains their excellence and economic success. In order to establish such a corporate culture, all corporate values must be thoroughly controlled, steered and measured. This book serves as an essential guide, helping companies to reach these goals and ensure their sustainable economic success.
