Organizational culture is the web that connects employees with each other and the organization. Just like a web, culture is elastic, capable of changing and being reinforced. This course introduces the concept of organizational culture. Students will explore components of culture, how to change culture and the role of leadership in the creation and evolution of culture. An understanding of culture will assist students to identify the interrelationships and components of a culture and assess what is required to navigate cultural evolution.
