Organizational culture can be defined as a system of shared beliefs and values that develops within an organization and guides the behavior of its members.

Organizational Culture refers to the values, beliefs and customs of an organization. The concept of organizational culture has gained wide acceptance as a way to understand human systems. Having a strong culture allows an organization to operate with their sight on the future that should be supported by well developed and well communicated beliefs and values.

Societal "culture" is widely accepted to be a controlling factor in the way that people think, act, and process information. Organizational Culture (OC) is just as influential on members of the organization and on the success of the organization. While various references emphasize different aspects of O.C. the basic definition that Kreitner and Kinicki (2007) write as "the set of shared, taken-for-granted implicit assumptions that a group holds and that determines how it perceives, thinks about, and reacts to its various environments" is widely accepted.
One way of understanding O.C. is...VIEW DOCUMENT

The culture of an organization is embedded into the company by the example set forth by its founders and leaders. These cultures are mirrored in the strategies used by the company, and ultimately determine the overall success in its industry. These values that make up culture are buried deep into the core of a business and make up what the organization is and what it stands for which is known as the mission and core values. Leaders carry an intricate role in the control of culture and many companies depend on such leaders to take a strong approach so that the culture can be effectively managed.
Great leaders create a culture in their companies that drives the results they want to...VIEW DOCUMENT
Organizational culture refers to the underlying beliefs, values, and assumptions held by members of an organization, and the practices and behaviors that exemplify and reinforce
them. Some aspects of organizational culture, such as individual behavior and group norms, are very visible. "Working hard," "dressing conservatively," or "acting friendly to customers" are aspects of cultures that are easy to observe. Other aspects of culture are harder to observe, since they represent the invisible assumptions, values, and core beliefs.
Examples of this less visible level of culture might be a belief in the importance of "doing things right the first time," "being...VIEW DOCUMENT

In this article Hickok argues that, ultimately, the most prominent effects of downsizing will be in relation to culture change, not in relation to saved costs or short-term productivity gains. In particular, the author notes three observations in relation to the impact of downsizing on organizational culture. First, it clearly appears that power has shifted away from rank-and-file employees in the direction of top management/ownership. Accompanying this change is a shift in emphasis away from the well-being of individuals in the direction of the pre-eminence and predominance of the organization as a whole. Second, it appears working relationships have changed away from...VIEW DOCUMENT
Organizational behavior is the study of individuals and groups in organizations. The study of organizational behavior is devoted to understanding individual and group behavior, interpersonal processes and organizational dynamics with the goal of improving the performance of organizations and the people in them (Schermerhorn, Hunt, Osborn, 2007, pp. 5). Organizational culture is the internal environment of an organization, the shared beliefs and values that influence organizational behavior (pp. 11).

When analyzing an organization's culture, it is essential to understand the role culture plays in today's business environments. Organizational culture is the foundation of any business, as it breeds employee attitudes, dictates their behavior, and infuses in them a specific work ethic. In companies where the organizational culture is positive, employees are unsurprisingly more productive, more creative and waste less time on non-business related activities. Companies that harbor a negative organizational culture can fuel poor employee performance, disloyalty, and the mismanagement of company time and resources. This paper will review two Internet articles on the topic of organizational...VIEW DOCUMENT

Leading is establishing direction and influencing others to follow that direction. However, there are many variations and different areas of emphasis to this very simple definition. Experts assert that, whether you're an executive or an entry-level worker in your organization, it's critical for you to have strong skills in leadership.
Many people believe that leadership is simply being the
first, biggest or most powerful. Leadership in organizations has a different and more meaningful definition. A leader is interpreted as someone who sets direction in an effort and influences people to follow that direction. How they set that direction and influence people...VIEW DOCUMENT
One key component that gives your company or operation that elusive, sustainable competitive advantage is culture.
What is culture? In essence, it's a soft, intangible element that deals with people, trust, leadership and passion. The best definition I've heard is this: What people will do when no one tells them what to do.
Why is culture important? Because your competitor can duplicate everything you do, i.e. your pricing structure, but they can't duplicate your culture.

تأثير ثقافة المنظمة في حل المشاكل

v Anthropologists would recognize that humans are social animals and form communities to achieve common aims, through cooperation and mutual obligations. Hence, scientist identify culture as "understandings about life experiences shared by members of a human social group"
When we hear the word 'culture', what appear on our minds are traditions, which have lived and been practiced through the generations of a certain race, tribe or people, for examples, top-spinning and traditional wedding for the Malays.

Starbucks - Corporate Culture and Motivation
At its most basic, corporate culture is the personality of an organization or simply how things are done around there. However, in a broader sense it refers to 'the moral, social and behavioral norms of an organization based on the beliefs, attitudes and priorities of its members.' It determines how employees think, act and feel. Every organization has a different concept about the kind of culture that it should have, therefore cultures across organizations may differ despite of having certain common elements1. However common to all organizations is the essential need of fostering a sense of family so that employees do not...VIEW DOCUMENT
