Org. Structure and Design Will ´seldom´ Influence Org Culture

In action research done for the past 10 years, most organizational structure design change implementations have NOT been able to influence the culture of the organizations studied. Mostly because there is lack of knowledge on cultural aspects and how to change or develop these and thus assumptions and values do not change.
At the same time I have studied some really successful cultural changes, but these have not been structural change designs, rather Kaizen influenced or leadership development programs (leading to developments corresponding with Schein's cultural primary embedding mechanism).
Most research I have found (Martin, Alvesson and more) does imply that the cultural change programs they have researched do not reach their goals.
