Culture: Assessing the relationship among cultural heritage, organizational culture, and an organization's environment: A comparative exploratory investigation of the United States and Canada

by Rose, Charmaine A., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2008, 76 pages; 3304133


Migration of individuals on a daily basis to both America and Canada has created not only a society of diversification, but also a workforce. This is not the only reason for diversification, organizations are also becoming diverse by mergers. This influx can lead to a new set of quandary for both leaders and organizations. The word culture has many meaning based on the context in which it is used, being cultured can be based on upbringing, class, the enlightenment and sophistication of education, whether or not they are well traveled, or able to appreciate the arts. Culture can also be defined as a shared belief, customs, practice, and social behavior of a group or society that can affect attitudes, behaviors, perceptions and expectations on a daily basis.
