Introduction According to Schein (1992), organization culture is becoming very significant nowadays compared with the past because it will affect the overall performance of an organization. By understanding the organization culture, it enables managers to analyze the organization behavior in order to lead and monitor (Ojo, 2010). Organizational culture is the system of sharing the common actions, values and beliefs that develops within an organization despite the characteristic of the members are different and it will guides the behavior of its members (Schermerhorn et al., 2011, p 366). It acts as glue that holds the overall organization together with the common practices (Tichy, 1982). Pettigrew (1979) argued that style of an organization in conducting a business is mostly depends on the different level of culture based on the multifaceted set of beliefs, values and assumptions.
It is so important because to most people experiences in an organization influences how they evaluate their own individual achievements and self-worth. However, the question is how people relate to developing competencies in communication of excellence in an organization (Watson, 2013). Organizational experiences of an individual results from the preferences, beliefs, abilities, and attitudes the employee brings t the organization, what types of relationships in organizations the individual develops, and how the organization plans to influence a person. Each individual brings to the organization their personal needs, communication competencies, predispositions for behaviour, skills and expectations (Ott, 2005). Individuals also create relationships with theirs, supervisors, customers, vendors and employees that become primary sources of information about all organizational aspects (Milkman,
Research and theory building is a systematic investigation, where the researchers aim to seek answers to a problem posed. Research in the professional Social Sciences areas, such as the development of Psychology of Leadership, has largely shadowed the traditional objective scientific method, ergo, the quantitative research approach (Stentz, Clark, & Matkin, 2012). However, in more recent years, there has been a strong shift towards using a more naturalistic and subjective methodology. This gave rise to a divide in the realm of social science research, pitting the methodologies of qualitative research against that of quantitative research. Qualitative research methodologies take on an idiographic tone, and emphasize the importance of including
Some of the pros are that Hofstede provided a definition of culture and how culture can be measured. His research showed that cultural differences matter. Also, Hofstede's model provides managers of cross-cultural relations a tool to help them understand differences in value sets and behavior. Hofstede's model helped people in day to day life by making them understand about different culture. Another pro is Hofstede model negates that one set of principles is universally applicable by confirming that there are multiple ways of structuring organizations and institutions.
So, trying to assess organizational culture is complicated by the reality that you are trying to hit a moving target. But it also opens the possibility that culture change can be managed as a continuous process rather than through big shifts.

Organizational culture has several definitions. This is on the grounds that it is a broadly utilized term however one that appears to offer ascent to a level of uncertainty seems to give rise to a degree of ambiguity in terms of assessing its effectiveness on change variables in an organization. For the purpose of this paper, organizational culture is understood as the Shared values and beliefs that enable members to understand their roles and the norms of the organization that distinguishes an organization from other organizations. Every organization has a unique culture making it different from the other and giving it a sense of direction. It is essential for the employees to understand the culture of their workplace to adjust well (Arnold
Introduction The definition of a team can be defined many different ways. It may be defined as a group of people who are interdependent with respect to information, resources, and skills, who seek to combine their efforts to achieve a common goal. The dynamics of a team is the manner in which the team relates with regard to the interpersonal relationships involved in order for the conglomeration to achieve a common goal. In this task, I’m addressing the importance of team dynamics as it relates to the success and failure of a team and its goals.It also provides an overview of how teams perform within the organization to achieve the organization's strategic objectives. (Susan T. Beyerlein, 2003) According to me the Team performance has an important
But today, globalisation has changed the work environment, the way we work and has increased the cultural differences. Today’s leaders must work with a diverse workforce and also ensure good relationships with clients, suppliers and colleagues from around the world. The leaders must be aware that the culture varies from person to person. In order to understand the cultural differences that exists among the teams or employees in an organisation, the leader may have study the group on the basis of the certain parameters such as a. Communication- whether the culture the individual belongs to is low context or high context b. Evaluation – whether the individual is open to direct negative feedback or
Cultural relativism has a variety of definitions, but the main idea is that a universal code of ethics does not exist--it varies culture to culture. Rachel’s examines cultural relativism in “The Challenge of Cultural Relativism” and argues that there are commonalities of ethics throughout every culture. Rachels sections off his argument to better explain what they believe. In this piece, they argue that cultural relativism is not a proper theory. They argue that it has many major flaws, but they acknowledge that parts of theory have some truth to it.
