Although the ethics and automatic rules that exist are often not the same in all societies, what always remains is the idea that there are certain ways in which all individuals should conduct themselves and that if they do not conduct themselves in the authorised manner by the culture , they will be judged. (Foucault 2005: 179) At this point, we can conclude that a culture of a specific region develops as a result of the influence of history , environment, religion as well as the development of the region. With this knowledge , we cannot progress without understanding that when analysing individual cultures, you must break them down into their individual characteristics and take all of these characteristics into account. This is where one of the most controversial theories of analysis comes into play in the form of ‘cultural relativism’. Cultural relativism asserts the fact that each culture has its own type of coherent understanding (Heintz 2009 : 5.)
In other words they are both opened to having several meanings. They both have characteristics in which everyone will interpret differently. Some people may misunderstand what another person is trying to gesture or express. Both verbal communication and nonverbal communication are limited in character by belonging to a particular culture. They both obey certain norms in their societies.
Attitudes towards teamwork Attitudes generally reflect our inclinations towards a particular type of behaviour and help us understand and predict individual reactions in a social situation. Despite being changeable, education, information, modelling and target attractiveness may affect the adoption of different attitudes and behaviour alteration. An attitude towards teamwork can be defined as a behavioural tendency that reflects an individual's relationship to his/her own willingness to work in a team.

Background Organizational culture is described by Robbins & Coulter  as the shared values, beliefs, or perceptions held by employees within an organization or organizational unit. Because organizational culture reflects the values, beliefs and behavioral norms that are used by employees in an organization to give meaning to the situations that they encounter, it can influence the attitudes and behavior of the staff . Understanding the organization’s core values can prevent possible internal conflict . In other management fields, empirical research of organizational culture has involved the functionalist perspective, providing impressive evidence of the role of organizational culture in improving performance .The pervasiveness of
Organizations have “something” that makes them have a unique identity. In addition, managers must be capable of influencing the culture of the organisation. Thus., the effectiveness of a company is highly influenced by the strength of culture. Thus organizational culture ought to be complemented by the culture for it to be effective. Therefore, for internal stakeholders such as employees, communication of vision might be easier as they share the same belief.
With this in mind it is important to recognize that what may be considered deviant to some is acceptable to others; for those in power are the ones defining deviance, at times to their own advantage. One way to understand the presence of deviance in society is strain theory; the idea that normlessness and ‘strain’ will lead to individuals participating in deviant acts. Strain is a negative event that can diminish your opportunities of acceptable means for achieving societal ideals deemed usually as the “American Dream”. Although society may push similar goals onto the masses, i.e. wealth, power, success, not everyone can achieve these things which can lead to several different responses.
However, long term 0rganizational existence depends on how well the efforts of individuals and groups within the 0rganization are tied together, in line and sequenced so that people work efforts fit together effectively. Moreover, a strong 0rganizational culture provides greater stability of 0rganizational working. As such, an imitation of these findings, the following hypothesize was developed: Organizational culture is fundamentally “a pattern of basic assumptions that a group has invented, revealed, or developed in learning to cope with its problems of external adaptation and internal assimilation (Schein, 1983, p.14). Leaders facilitate the achievement of goals that otherwise may not have been attempted and support the need for change (Rousseau, 1996;Schein, 1985; Trice & Beyer, 1993) and therefore, they may be the
Therefore, the influence that culture have in personality is the manner they learn, live and behave. There are two type of culture the universal and culture specific aspect. Some culture specific aspect corresponded to culture syndromes such as complexity, tightness, individualism and collectivism. There are different theories that believe that culture is something very important in personality. One of the effect of culture to personality is that people who born and bred in the same culture share common personality traits.
The role of HR is essential in structure implementation and development it may also influence the structure by giving recommendations as per adjustment in order to align better with company culture, goals, and strategies. Organizational culture guides employees on their actions, interactions, decision making; helps them understand the world around them and the way to behave (Janicijivic 2011:72). Culture develops through mutual experiences and is accepted by employees as the
From its definition, the quality improvement process is grounded in the following basic concepts: Identification and prioritisation of areas for improvement, based on various sources such as organization own data, research evidence, literature, national reports, reported errors and external assessment. Accurate and reliable measurement, to understand how well the systems work, identify potential areas for improvement, set measurable objectives, and monitor the effectiveness of change. Communication of results, in various ways, and to all parties, to enhance learning, adjust the changes, and engage employees in the change.
