What is Organizational Culture? “Organizational culture is the sum of values and rituals which serve as ‘glue’ to integrate the members of the organization.”- Richard Perrin Organizational culture can be described as the shared norms; unspoken rules, underlying assumptions; behaviours and expectations that govern the way people approach their work and interact with each other.

Such norms and expectations shape how the organizational members believe they are expected to behave in order to fit in, get things done, and navigate through organizational politics. Organizational cultures are complex as they made up of multiple layers that have developed over time by influential characters. We have all had the feeling of arriving in a new organization and questioning some of the actions, but these actions have become so ingrained as “the way things are done around here” that they have become habit and people have stopped questioning the way they do things.

Lewin's Change Management Model - Change Management Training from MindTools

Change is a common thread that runs through all businesses regardless of size, industry and age. Our world is changing fast and, as such, organizations must change quickly too.
