Organisational culture is an extremely difficult issue to define since there are so many inter-relating components:

Power -- Who holds the legitimate authority and who makes the decisions in the organisation? These authority figures and decision makers may not be the same people.

Politics -- What types of different relationships exist in the organisation and whose views have unofficial influence?

Values and beliefs -- What do the decision makers believe in, and how well are these values accepted by the rest of the people in the organisation?

Ideologies -- What underlying philosophies influence management style and procedures? Is there a recognisable policy of how to deal with people?

Social influences -- What are the different social pressures on behaviour?
