• Unit 1: Corporate Culture

    Corporate culture or organizational culture has a large impact on many aspects of a business and can sometimes influence its success or failure. It is defined as a system of shared assumptions, values, and beliefs that show people what is appropriate and inappropriate behavior in the workplace.

    In this unit we will explore the fundamentals of organizational culture. We'll look at the dimensions of organizational cultures that you are likely to encounter in the workplace and why they matter. We'll also explore how managers can measure, create and maintain cultures in their organization. Finally, we'll take a look at what happens if the culture has changed or needs to change.
