Culture Factors
Hi Simon, there are really quite a number of aspects influencing the culture of an organisation. You can think of: 1. Size of the organisation 2. Organogram (Functional, Matrix) 3. 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?

Constituents of Organizational Culture
