Culture is King: Organizational Culture and It's Impact on Implementation
The justice system is entangled in grueling era of change. Staff in community supervision agencies are coping with multiple and sometimes competing initiatives. We see parallel changes in jails, prisons, courts, and law around us. We are implementing evidence-based practices and programs and innovating to get better results. Along the way, we confront the arduous and sometimes unforgiving elements of our organizations and environments that inhibit our ability to get measurable lasting change. What we have come to realize is that if you fail to diagnose and fully understand organizational culture, even highly resourced change efforts will become its victim. In this presentation we will explore the commanding impact that organizational culture has on our ability to create sustainable and meaningful change. We will introduce a tool designed to help leaders and innovators diagnose and dialogue about their organization’s culture and its impact on efforts.

Learning Objective 1: Participants will learn the basic research and statistics that underlie the importance of applying implementation science and organizational science to criminal justice settings.
Learning Objective 2: Participants will learn a data-supported argument that organizational culture serves an implicit but dominant role in the success or failure of implementation science.
Learning Objective 3: Participants will receive the Organizational Culture Dialogue Tool and learn how to apply it to their organizational culture.
