Culture is a term that nearly everyone uses, but few can agree upon its precise meaning, or how it can be measured. There are an abundance of definitions in social science literature … which taken together do suggest two sub-divisions. The first comprises the beliefs, attitudes and values (often unspoken) of an organization’s membership. The second is the more concrete structures, practices, controls and policies of an organization.
This conference is all about exploring current Culture e
