Cultural Due Diligence is a superior and more accurate methodology of determining exactly what an organisation's culture really is.
Cultural Due Diligence is not a Cultural Survey which usually consists of two parts, the first in the form of a questionnaire of pre-ordained dimensions and the second an opinionnaire of what the desired strength of the pre-ordained dimensions should be. This approach clearly illustrates the axioms of "Control the culture or it will control you" and "Companies have a choice; Culture by design or Culture by default".
A Cultural Survey is like asking a Gold Fish "What is the water like; Is it wet, if so how wet?" or "Is it cold or warm: How warm on a scale of 1 to 5" or "Is there enough water; Yes/No".
Cultural Due Diligence is about a probing, deep digging analysis and stress testing of all the cultural shaping practices and symbolic elements in a workplace.

- Communication systems and practices
