What is Organisational Culture and Why Should We Care? (Lausanne)

Lausanne, Switzerland

Why do some organisations seem to be identified by their culture, their way of doing things, of treating their employees and interacting in the market place whilst other successful organisations keep a low profile and rarely figure in organisational culture debates? Who are these organisations and who gets it right? Should culture be actively managed or passively responded to and how do social norms affect culture; can culture be measured?
These are some of the topics we will discuss supported by a research report and case studies which will draw out the cultural issue facing organisations in the future.
