Organizational Priorities are the third component of Core Culture. They are located one layer outside of Purpose and Philosophy. (See the image below.)

Core Culture
source: Sheila Margolis

Priorities are an added layer of core values to guide the organization as the Purpose and the Philosophy may not address all of the current requirements to be a thriving organization. Priorities are additional values the organization must focus on and pay attention to now. Priorities are not typically as stable as the Purpose or the Philosophy. Priorities can change as the environment — within or outside the organization – changes. Priorities allow the organization to have an adaptive, resilient culture. It is the Priorities that keep an organization agile and alert. To sum up, Priorities provide the momentum to change behaviors that will enable the organization to thrive – while sustaining its distinction – its identity (the Purpose and Philosophy).[1]
