The culture of an organization is influenced as the organization faces and learns how to cope with external and internal challenges. Those principles are maintained as the organization's way of doing business offers an effective adaptation to environmental problems and maintains success. As a way to do business, new members are taught certain principles and ways of doing business. In any program for improving organizations and human resource policies and procedures, the culture of an organization shapes the way people behave and needs to be taken into account as a contingency factor. This is why understanding the idea of organizational culture, how it affects organisations, and how it can be handled is important for industrial sociologists as well as human resources specialists. One thing is common among most of them, despite the different meanings and viewpoints on organizational culture, and that is the mutual existence of values, philosophies, and norms. In essence, many argued that the role of organizational culture is to establish within the organization a feeling of ‘esprit de corps’. To this end, this study explores organizational culture as an important topic in the area of industrial and human relations management to a large degree. This research is targeted at groups within the organization; executive leaders and key workers (change agents) who play an important role in identifying and introducing any change in the work atmosphere of the organization, as well as organizations researching academics and practitioners. This study examines evidence that provides discourse-relevant material.
