As a general comment, organizational cultures do not change until the organizations collapse, the leaders die or retire, and a new generation with new internal values derived from external reality is empowered.  Installed leaders will always go for what they learned 20 years earlier, doing the wrong thing righter.  It is a very rare leader that empowers and protects their “Wild Ducks” to achieve revolutionary change among static mind-sets.
