A Strong Organizational Culture

An organizational culture can be weak or strong. Both have advantages and disadvantages.

A strong organizational culture could be one were the majority of the the participants hold the same basic beliefs and values as applies to the organization. The people in this group may follow the perceived rules and ethical procedures that are basic to the organization, even if those values are not publicly stated by the organization.

This can be extremely valuable for building a team where all the participants have the same goals. Working together to improve efficiency or, possibly, communication with management could be some of the goals.

This could also be detrimental to the company if the rules and regulations become more important to the participants than the actual goals of the company. New people joining the company are consciously of unconsciously indoctrinated into the existing culture, making innovation hard to come by.
