This chapter explores the multidimensions or facets of organizational culture and how it creates a common culture between employees and their organization. It explores a formal and informal definition of organizational culture, why organizational culture matters, and the characteristics of organizational culture. Moreover, it explores a positive or negative organizational culture, the seven dimensions of organizational culture, Schein's cultural iceberg, Hofstede's model of organizational culture, and Charles Handy's model of organizational culture. These theories are investigated and summarized in the tables throughout the chapter to help understand how a summation of many parts can describe organizational culture. Additionally, it explores the four types of organizational culture, core values, subcultures, and countercultures, and their influence on shaping organizational culture. Lastly, Thomas Kilmann's conflict resolution model is explored as a summation of the theories above and explains how advancements in training and development lead to a positive organizational culture.
