Definition of Organizational Culture

Organizational culture is composed of shared believes, values, attitude, behaviors, or norms that are reflected in the organizational strategies and decisions. These factors shaped the culture which may help an organization to stay competitive. Project leaders who don’t properly understand the organizational culture are unable to adapt to the values and norms of the company and have low work efficiency.


Project leaders, who on the other end have a strong connection with the company’s culture have more work productivity, flexibility, and influence. Overall, organizational culture is a powerful tool that either act as a catalyst or a road bumper for the project.
