Corporate Culture – A myth?

One of the simplest ways to define corporate culture is "The way things get done around here".

A mistake often made by organisations is to believe that the corporate culture can be equated to the operationalised statements of culture.

Such is the case when executives come back from their annual retreat revealing the new values for the company. Sticking a list of values on the wall does not create a culture.
