How does organisational culture come about? Can you describe what your current culture is like or what you would like it to be? Is there an Organisational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI) that can clearly identify the current as well as the preferred culture?
Whenever there is a group of people, organisational culture happens. It is the behavioral norms, shared values and beliefs of that group. In most cases, people may not be aware, but sub-consciously they are influencing, copying and adapting to fit into the organisational culture.
Organisational culture depicts the way employees “do things around here”. Given this fact, there is an increased importance to develop a desired culture that contributes positively to the organization.
