Why "Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast" Misses the Point of a Truly Healthy Work Culture

Famed management consultant and writer Peter Drucker once said, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." The crux of this sweeping statement is based on the idea that culture trumps strategy in building a successful organization. While I agree that culture helps to empower employees and set a solid foundation for success, culture isn't simply set and forgotten.
Culture is a living, breathing organism within an organization that demands constant evolution as the tone of an organization shifts throughout its lifecycle. What really eats strategy for breakfast are a company's values — the values inform how a culture iterates over time.
