Adaptive cultures are those whose values and norms help an organization build momentum, grow, and change as needed to achieve its goals and be effective. Inert cultures fail to motivate or inspire employees; they lead to stagnation and often failure over time.

Adaptive cultures adopt human resource practices that demonstrate their commitment to their members. These companies develop long-term career paths for their employees and invest heavily in training and development to make them more valuable to the organization. Companies that develop inert cultures have values that do not include protecting and increasing the worth of their people as a major goal. Their employment practices are based on short-term employment needs and minimal investment in their employees.
