Culture is made up of the values, beliefs, underlying assumptions, attitudes,
and behaviors shared by a group of people. Culture is the behavior that results when a
group arrives at a set of generally unspoken and unwritten rules for working together. An
organization culture is made up of all the life experiences each employee brings to the
organization. Culture is especially influenced by the organizationís founder, executives,
and other managerial staff because of their role in decision making and strategic direction.
Richard Bowett introduces the concept of corporate culture. Businesses are not separate
entities, but collections of people. All collections of people produce certain common and
important patterns of behavior. So the topic of corporate culture is really about people and
the way they behave when in groups together.
