    Learn about the latest industry trend by delving into the vast potential of Cultural Integration and its implementation framework, the CARDS Model. A recently developed cultural change management concept, the CARDS Model is a tool that helps OD and HR leaders quickly address emerging cultural shifts happening in their workplace environments with confidence and grace.
