The link between organisational environment and organizational culture


New insights based on the modul_or


In a recent conference paper, we examine the connection of organizational environment characteristics and corporate culture facets. It is based on our research with the modular inventory for organizational research modul_or and applied on the concept of uncertainty. Results show that organisations from rather dynamic business domains with higher demands of uncertainty are different to ones coming from rather stable, more predictable environments. Overall, our research shows the importance of a balance of flexibility-focused behaviour (for adapting on unforeseen changes) and stability-creating habits (for reducing organisational strain).
