Organisational Development

What is the impact of organizational culture on organizational development?

Getting Started

Organizational culture is an important concept for anyone involved in organizational development.

It is the shared values, beliefs, and behaviors that shape the way people interact with each other and the environment.

Understanding organizational culture can help you create a more productive and positive work environment.

How to

  1. Understand the current culture. Take the time to observe the current culture and identify the values, beliefs, and behaviors that are shared by the organization.
  2. Identify areas for improvement. Once you have identified the current culture, look for areas where it could be improved.
  3. Develop a plan. Create a plan to address the areas for improvement. This plan should include specific goals and objectives, as well as strategies for achieving them.
  4. Implement the plan. Put the plan into action and monitor the results. Make adjustments as needed to ensure that the plan is successful.

Best Practices

  • Encourage open communication and collaboration.
  • Foster a culture of respect and trust.
  • Promote diversity and inclusion.
  • Reward and recognize employees for their contributions.


Here is an example of a role-play conversation that demonstrates how organizational culture can be improved:

Employee: I feel like I’m not being heard in meetings.

I have some great ideas, but they never seem to get taken seriously.

Manager: I understand how you feel.

We want to create an environment where everyone’s ideas are valued.

Let’s talk about how we can make that happen.

Employee: I think it would help if we had more open communication and collaboration.

That way, everyone can contribute their ideas and be heard.

Manager: That’s a great idea.

Let’s start by setting up a weekly meeting where everyone can share their ideas and feedback.

We can also create a system where employees can submit their ideas online.

Employee: That sounds like a great plan.

I’m sure it will help create a more positive work environment.

Manager: I agree.

Let’s get started right away.
