About the book
Values, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors constitute an organization’s culture and employees share and use them on a daily basis in their work. Culture is a driver of decisions, actions, and ultimately the overall performance of the organization determining how employees describe where they work, how they understand the business, and how they see themselves as part of the organization. This book briefly aims to portray a new interpretation of organizational culture varying from the profusion of literature in following ways: It first attempts to include how cultures are created organically or through consistent planning and action in different organizations such as education, business, and health focusing more on change and learning opportunities. It also aims to provide leaders of different organizations experiences and reflections on how to initiate an organizational culture change as it is no easy task. Finally, this book is expected to extend new perspectives and practices for both potential and actual managers of organizations contributing to the current debate on organizational culture.
