Discussion Question(s) for Response: How does the culture of an organization come about, and how do ethics and values shape the culture of an organization? Is it possible to change the culture of an organization over time? If so, how?
There are three characteristics that form the foundation of an organization’s corporate culture:
- Corporate culture is shared (i.e., represents a common understanding and interpretation of what is important and not important within the framework of an organization);
- Corporate culture is intangible (i.e., reflects the values, norms, and assumptions upon which an organization is unwilling to compromise);
- Corporate culture affects the way that human capital assets behave.
