Organizational Culture and Strategic Planning Concepts

Bureaucracy, social structure, formal organization
The culture of an organization is the set of informal, unwritten “rules” which people believe in and live by that indicate what the organization really wants, what really counts in getting ahead or, alternatively, how to stay out of trouble. Usually this culture is unquestioned and may be unrecognized.  People take it for granted; it’s habitual: “Fish are the last to know they are in water.”
