1. In part one of this discussion, provide your definition of the concept of organizational culture and explain the role that the organizationâ€™s culture plays in defining or shaping the organization.
2. In part two of this discussion, use your current employer (or a past employer if you have no employer at the present time) as an example and provide an analysis/explanation of this organizationâ€™s culture through looking at its artifacts, beliefs, values, rules, norms and underlying assumptions. Tell us about each of these and then provide a summary that describes this culture based on these attributes. Look at this as a scientist wouldâ€¦step back and examine the â€œevidenceâ€ and then share your interpretation with the class.
If it helps, my past employer is a coporate childcare center, which was Kindercare Education LLC if you want to look it up.
