Elements of Organizational Culture
Static Culture
Change in Direction, and Leadership
Organizational culture is the interference between individuals and change which in turn converts to a barrier or a facilitator in an organization transformation. (Muscalu, 2014)
Dramatic Crisis
Dramatic crisis such as financial meltdown, technological breakthrough, competitor surge or a recession would bring in organizational culture changes which are called adaption change. These changes are brought in to improve the culture and the overall organization due to the unforeseen events (Moldovan, 2014)
Weak Organizational Culture
If there is a strong membership who promotes the culture, then it will be hard to change the organizational culture
Weak organizational culture exists mainly due to lack of leadership.
Young and Small Organizations
Until organizations find their footing, there will be changes to their organizational culture and also if the organization is small, then the organization is susceptible to changes in organizational culture due to changes to memberships change in organizational culture and values.
Sense of Belonging

Forward thinking companies of the 21st century mostly have dynamic organizational cultures.

Employees would have a sense of belonging in a dynamic organizational culture even with changes to it's culture.

Changes in Dynamic organizational cultures are not radical but they are gradual changes that the membership would accept.
Example of a Dynamic Organization
Top Down Management
Static Culture typically has a top-down
management structure.

Example of a Static Organization
Though it can be considered a culture on its' own, the Military is a static culture
Promote from within
Promotions take place internally as
current employees are more likely to "get"
the existing organizational culture.
Time is money
Static cultures don't require the investment time,
money and resources required to develop changes.
No Resistance
Static cultures don't have to deal with animosities and resistance to change.
Demand Based Production
Static cultures can predict the future based on past results
Habit Forming
Benefits of a Dynamic
Increase productivity and profit by introducing a new organizational culture
Attract new talent to the organization and prevent possible turnover due to weak organizational culture
Change is entertained only when there is a crisis

Highly structured

Many policies and rules used to manage

"The model is to “push” information. These organizations hire people to show up and follow orders." (Kiely, L.)
Process changes that would increase efficiency
Obstacles of a Dynamic culture
Change is too costly
Not all the users buy in to change
Time consuming
Do not always get the desired output
