Good organisation, good business

A research paper recently published in the Technology in Society journal shows how strong the bonds between the vital components of a company are

Corporate culture that also becomes culture of production organisation: a business’s ability to organise itself wittingly and mindfully is no small feat, and it has become a particular feature that denotes what we think of as a “good company”. Indeed, good organisation – to be understood as all-round organisation – is often a clear indication, just like financial results, of a company that truly, rather than seemingly, integrates a culture of production.

Hence, the study and quantification of the relationships between organisational culture and corporate culture is of paramount importance. This is what has been accomplished in “Expanding competitive advantage through organizational culture, knowledge sharing and organizational innovation”, a research study recently published in the Technology in Society journal.

The aim of the investigation – undertaken from both a theoretical and an empirical viewpoint – is to explore the relationship between organisational culture, knowledge sharing,  organisational innovation and competitive advantage. In other words, it seeks the answer to a single question: how important is good organisational culture for a company whose objective is integral growth?

The answer was pursued through a survey involving 294 industrial managers, who were asked to complete a questionnaire, and the outcome confirmed that organisational culture, knowledge sharing and organisational innovation have a positive impact on competitive advantage. More in detail, organisational culture fosters knowledge sharing and innovation activities between the workforce and links them to high-level corporate processes that could enhance the acquisition of advanced production capacities. More succinctly, the investigation shows how much organisational culture is essential to a company’s operational success, as well as the extent of knowledge sharing and organisational innovation as key factors to gain competitive advantage.

“Expanding competitive advantage through organizational culture, knowledge sharing and organizational innovation” does not add any particular theoretical wisdom to the understanding of corporate activities, but nonetheless contributes to increase the wealth of knowledge useful to better understand what happens within a good company.
