This company is your discussion case in which to apply the Organizational Culture chapter learnings. Use the internet and that company’s website to learn about their organizational culture (high level). As you read, think about the match or disconnect between what is on your firm’s website and what information you find on reliable news sites, as it pertains to their organizational culture. Use Chapter 15 as your guide for understanding the critical components of organizational culture.
Your one post should consist of a brief description of the organization you are assigned (no more than one paragraph, ie about 4 sentences) and then your choice of 3 key organizational culture factors discussed in your text. Clearly label the 3 distinct cultural factors. Compare those cultural factors as described in your text to what you are able to learn about your case firm. Discuss also how this company compares to more traditionally founded (male?) organizations.
Here are questions to prompt your thinking. Don’t answer them- Just let them help you get your juices flowing!
What kind of culture (as described in your text) exists in the top 50 company you were assigned? Are there subcultures? Countercultures? How does the organizational culture function? Are there differences between the observable and unobservable organizational culture that you have learned? How are decisions made? What organizational myths, sagas, rites, and rituals seem to exist there? How do the shared values compare to the text’s discussion of shared values? What are the firm’s ethics? Does their organizational culture seem to support those stated ethics? What else did you learn about organizational culture that seems pertinent to you when examining this firm? Did you find the company’s mission statement and goals or strategic plan? How is innovation treated in the company?
