Corporate Culture
What is Corporate Culture?
Corporate Culture is the
organization’s
personality and is strong
to the degree that
behaviors reflect values.
Cultures
• USA
• Fort Worth---San Francisco
• Europe
• Istanbul
Culture
creation/strengthening is
the process of converting
words to behaviors. It is
personality development.
Behavior* is the Culture Metric
Behaviors are different from emotions, feelings and
impressions. Behaviors have these characteristics:
1. Observable
2. Repeatable
3. Measureable
The two metrics for behavior are:
1. Frequency, and
