1. What is an organization and culture?
ANSWER:
Organization
- is an entity comprising multiple people, such as an institution or an association, that has a collective goal
and is linked to an external environment.
Culture
- Culture as the complex pattern of ideas, emotions, and observable/symbolic manifestations that tend to
be expected, reinforced, and rewarded by and within a particular group. Culture results when people organize and
interact, but this occurs mostly subconsciously and on the basis of their experiences, expectations, and beliefs about
themselves, others, and their shared context.
2. Discuss the various levels of culture.
ANSWER:
 National/Societal: The level of culture that deals with awareness of cultural dynamics and patterns by nationality. It
is particularly relevant for (a) entering a new market for product, service, and/or talent; (b) cross-border division of
labor; and (c) international outsourcing relationships.
 Organizational Culture: The level of culture that focuses on the experience of cultural dynamics in an organization.
This is especially relevant for global organizations and those involved in M&A.
 Identity Group Culture: The level of culture for analyzing the diversification of society by gender, generation,
ethnicity, religious affiliation, and other social groups. It is particularly relevant for workforce diversity and talent
management concerns.
 Functional Culture: The level of culture that addresses cross-functional effectiveness, based on the cultures created
by specific business units. Cross-functional or management teams concentrate on functional cultures and leverage
their differences carefully, bridging distinct cultural differences across their constituent units.
 Team Culture: The level of culture that becomes apparent when teams develop a distinct identity and culture. To
effectively build teams in global and matrixed organization, an understanding of how to collaborate in complex and
dynamic situations is essential.
 Individual Culture: The level at which the "building blocks" of culture are present,in both intrapersonal and
interpersonal dynamics. An understanding of this level is important for successfully addressing the concerns at any
level of culture.
3. Comment on the accuracy of the following statement: “Without employees, an organization has no organizational
memory.”
ANSWER:
The employee plays a vital role in organization. I truly believe that an organization need employee because without
an employee the organization will not succeed and achieve the primary objectives of an organization. Organization has
no organizational memory without employee because an employee is the brain and core of an organization. If we
compare how the brain functions the body will not move without it. Employees can contribute new ideas,
transformations, and innovations to make difference to the organization.
4. Due to Verticalization in the Academe, three of the six faculties who work on your department have been transferred to
other department and three new recruits to the organization will be assigned to your department as replacements.
Although the three new hires are experienced from other department, they are new to your area and your team.
Consequently, your team will pass through most stages of team development again. Briefly describe any three (3) stages
of team development that your team will probably experience after the new recruits join the team. Your answer should
recognize that only half of your faculty members are new; the others have been with the team for more than one year.
ANSWER:
Forming is one of the Stages of Group Development the same with recruiting half of the faculty as new faculty
member in the team. The new member of the faculty are establishing ground rules and pattern of relationship among
the team. Just like in forming stage the neophytes are predominantly by their feeling of uncertainty among the senior’s
group members. All of us will experience this stage whenever we are new in any team or organization. Just like what
happen in the academe verticalization you need to follow the rules as implemented in the department even if you are
not experience on that you need to know how to adjust yourself to adopt the needs of this academe verticalization.
St
Performing is the stage of group development where the group is finally ready to start working. After adjusting
yourself as new faculty members you are now working as a group. You can easily solve internal conflicts and the
acceptance of it. Sharing responsibility will achieve the primary perspectives and objectives of the team.
