Project #24611 - Organizational Culture

 

a.      Mgmt 350 Case Study: Organizational Culture (30 Points).  After chapter 14, you will have learned about organizational culture. The purpose of the Organizational Culture Case Study Project is to explore the organizational culture of a “real life” company. Using the information you have gleaned from Chapter 14 and class materials, perform a cultural analysis of an organization of your choice.

Select an organization and do secondary research, using TAMU-CT library data bases and other resources, to study the organization’s culture. The organization you select should be a Fortune 500 company that has enough written about it in the business press (e.g., Business Week, Fortune, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal) for you to do an adequate cultural analysis.

You will produce a 5-10 page written report (excluding cover sheet, references and any figures, tables or appendices). Your case analysis should provide:

1. A description of the elements of the company’s culture in terms of artifacts, shared values, and shared assumptions (worth 30% of the grade) and

2. Your assessment of the relationship between the organization’s culture and company performance, including the effects of cultural strength, fit or alignment with its environment, and adaptive culture (worth 30% of the grade).

3. How it works to socialize its employees to fit the organization’s culture (worth 30% of the grade).

4. Be sure and include at least ten references, which must be cited in the body of your paper (worth 10% of the grade).

All work should be proofread, free of grammatical errors, include proper citations and be in accordance with American Psychological Association (APA) standards.

Referencing multiple pages from the same organization’s web site only count as one citation (e.g., Apple.com). When using more than one page from the same company, provide a URL that links to the home page or entry page for the document. Also, if there isn't a date available for the document use (n.d.) for no date. All references must be cited in the body of your paper

  

You may not do your project on the Apple, Google, McDonalds, McKesson, Nike, Starbucks, or Wal Mart (40% penalty if you do).
