Organization Culture-Concept
 
The culture of an organization has been considered to consist of three layers: Values about the organization’s mission, objectives or strategies; Beliefs which people in the organization talk about; Taken –for-granted assumptions or the organizational paradigm. The public statements of the organization’s values, beliefs and purposes are not descriptions of the organizational paradigm. This ‘real’ culture is evidenced by the way the organization actually operates. Matching strategic positioning and organizational culture is a critical feature of successful organizations.
 

Influence of Culture on Strategy

 
Henry Mintzberg said that one of the basic building blocks of organizational design is the ideology or culture of the organization. There are many frames of reference which exist at the organizational level and can be especially important as an influence on the development of organizational strategy. The social and cultural influences that impact the organization can be based on many different influences. These can be segregated into two groups, external and internal. The combination of these two has its impact on the individual. The external influences are the national or regional, professional/ institutional, and industry influences; and the internal influences are those of the organization and the functional/ divisional influences. The frames of reference are shown in Figure 18-8. Different group categories have been shaded differently in the figure.
