Good corporate culture

A classic read that is well worth re-reading better to understand the multi-cultural foundation of production organisations

Understanding corporate culture is apparently easy and straightforward. In actual fact, defining with accuracy the concept and practice of the culture of production organisations is anything but a foregone conclusion. This is also because the concept of corporate culture is a concept that is practised, one that is difficult to categorise and one which changes depending on who is experiencing it as well as on the basis of the individual production facilities. The updated re-edition of “Cultura d’azienda e leadership” (Corporate culture and leadership) by Edgar H. Schein is therefore a good way to “revise” the constituting elements of corporate culture, as well as always being an interesting read for anyone wishing truly to start sorting things out in this field of corporate activities.

At the heart of Schien’s thoughts are, on the one hand, the interaction between subcultures and organisational counter-cultures and, on the other, the interaction of these with the organisational culture that contains them. But what exactly is organisational culture? According to Schein, this should be understood as a coherent set of fundamental assumptions that a certain management has created, developed and promoted to tackle the problems of external adaptation and internal integration. Schein also specifies that cultural and organisational change is one of the toughest challenges for management. Especially today, within rapidly changing and multi-ethnic production and working contexts.

The book then begins with the general definition of culture, and then immediately provides a series of examples to explain its application within companies and production organisations as well as regards the growth of learning. The pages of Schein’s book therefore cover the cases of Ciba-Geigy Company, Apple, Saab Combitech but also of Ibm and Hewlett and Packard.Particular attention is then placed on the management of multi-ethnic cultures within companies. As well as on possible solutions to the problems posed by working with macro-cultures with which companies developing at global level have to deal.

The Book by Edgar Schein packs into a little more than 300 pages a significant volume of information and ideas that should be absorbed attentively by entrepreneurs and managers  at multiple levels, yet which could be helpful to many companies in Italy.
