Processes (formalised or informal) 4. Leadership style 5. Management style 6. Power (central or decentralised) 7. Control systems 8. Reward systems 9. Stories 10. Symbols 11. Rituals 12. Beliefs 13. Assumptions 14. Attitudes 15. Values 16. Culture(s) of external environment (countries or regions). Maybe also 17. Strategy? 18. Vision?
