1. In part one of this discussion, provide your definition of the concept of organizational culture and explain the role that the organization’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 organization’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 would…step back and examine the “evidence” 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.
