Organizations exist. So do cultures. As organization grows so do cultures. Yet growth in organization and growth in culture does not mean similarities ………………….. Or incongruent aspects of the culture. As organizations grows so do its people and more particularly so do its leaders.
As time passes these leaders in turn begin to influence the organization culture. While it is possible that home grown leaders influence culture in a particular way so do direct mid level hires who do their own influences. Effectively organizations, cultures and leaders co exists. Any study would have necessarily connected the way organizations, cultures and leaders connect and influence one another. Essentially that is the purpose of this study. To identify how does a leader influence culture in the context of specific types of organization and management models? The leader performs his/her role and while doing so is influencing and managing the culture. But in so doing is operating within a defined or a pre determined organizational type – this could be a study focused knowledge company, a altruistic voluntary organization or a legendary institution that has passed through many times.
