Corporate Culture Vis-a-vis Societal Culture
Vivek Joshi, Investor, India

Many of the individual features of corporate culture models such as the Denison Model have the same descriptors as in societal/national cultures (values, beliefs, assumptions, ...) such as Hofstede's Model.
Is there a study or model connecting or combining national and corporate cultures?
Frequently we encounter issues connected with corporate governance, where I believe western model are being used by us to evaluate the corporate governance of Indian/Asian companies. This leads to a dissonance - local businessmen unable to fathom or agree with what we say.
Businesses are microcosms of societies in which they operate. Essentially we need corporate governance models which are customized to specific societies.
Any views / studies on this?

We Need a Model Connecting or Combining National and Corporate Culture
Wilbert Tomlinson, HR Consultant, Jamaica
Yes, I agree... Businesses are microcosms of societies in which they operate. For example a post slavery, post colonial society should avoid negative impacts of these cultures appearing in present day corporate cultures by design. Left by themselves without conscious interventions they will appear and persist!
