According to the definition, given by Alan Adler, organizational culture refers to a complete eco-system of any organization, which includes different resources of an organization, i.e. intangible and tangible, human and non-human and realistic and behavioral components in the role. For small, medium or large organizations, organizational culture works as a dynamic factor across the countries in the world (Almond and Verba, 2015). Moreover, it can be described as an exclusive connection, which is created of different psycho-social components that is communicated among people, who are the important assets of organization.
For analyzing the efficiency and effectiveness of different components of organizational culture, it is generally evaluated how they affect the overall productivity of a corporation. As given in the e-study link, one of the major aspects of managing the corporations is to develop an environment, which aids a combination between strategies and organizational culture (Csikszentmihalyi, 2014). In this combination, the strategies are the ways, which are implemented by the organization in this competitive business environment.
The beliefs and value systems, on which the organization focuses, are generally seemed to be at a disagreement along with the tactics, which are implemented by the business. This type of incident can cause to gaps in the thoughts and perception of the employees in the organization and its structure (Fullan, 2014). It adversely influences the productivity and efficiency of the organization.
In Information technology industry, there are some examples, like; Wipro, which have adopted the organizational structure, i.e. adhocracy (Fiske & Taylor, 2013). This completely focuses on implementing the long term strategies and practices, which enhance and strengthen the innovation via a growth in employee motivation and engagement at workplace. An organization culture, which emphasizes on team work and each and every aspect of team work, is helpful in attaining high employee morale and commitment (Mumford, 2016).
For enhancing the different components of organizational culture, the organization requires being engaged in complete process. It should consider that how the processes are used in the benefit of organization. The administration department of the organization should be ready and open to manage the critics.
Thus from the above analysis, it can be concluded that the organizational culture is very important for the productivity of an organization. It has positive impact on the employee morale and motivation. The decision makers and management should consider the organizational culture for creating the strategies in the organization. There may be different values systems and culture that have diverse outcomes on performance of organization. Thus, for the managers, it is necessary to understand these practices and processes. The report is prepared by looking at the e-study link, which is given. It states that the managers should emphasize on developing an effective culture and structure in their organization.
Activity 1: Thomas Friedman on Globalization
This report has made an attempt to understand different principles and concepts, which developed globalization as a global phenomenon. This analysis is done by considering two given video resources that includes well-recognized activist of globalization, i.e. Dr. Thomas Freidman, who is speaking about the current state of globalization. Furthermore, he speaks about how globalization has created the universe flat. At the end, this report includes the levels of globalization and it includes the factors, which impact the process of globalization.
After the era of Second World War, the leaders from several countries resigned to carry forth an age which is known as sensitive perception of interconnection among the countries for different social and economic activities (Altbach, 2015). This made sure that the global economics and politics of the countries are not more inaccessible and these nations are able to frame significant and collectively giving benefits to developing relationships with other countries.
In this sense, Dr. Thomas Freidman goes behind a hypothesis and theoretical assumption, which states that the internationalization and liberalization have directed the world into becoming firmed out. According to this leader, the golden era of globalization started again in the age of 1400s, with the nations, which are assisting as driving units in this calculation. In the globalization’s era 2.0 that is run in the duration from 1820s to year 2000, the companies and different trades became the coworkers to establish a long lasting relationship between different international organizations of different characteristics (Friedman, 2015). In the globalization era 3 of Friedman, the people work as resources for collaborating and correlating with other people from another area of the world to balance the playing field, which includes the social and economic concepts of any modern era of civilization (Ghemawat, 2016). This fact is known as the universe having been crushed out. It may have different adverse impacts because globalization will need the people to be more communicative and involved, when it is about interaction to other business entities in the global world. This has increased the competition in several areas, like education, industry and business etc. (James & Van Seters, 2014).
In the case of various large business organizations, like; Coca Cola, the business prospects indicate that the organization was able to collect, it was due to globalization. This made the organization able to increase and expand its business operations to different locations of the world that had already expanded to the foreign organizations by entering to the economies of these countries (Hite & Chorev, 2014).
The third globalization era has been contributory in the social and cultural development of the most of the communities in the world. The right implication of iron rule by Friedman of the flat universes, which recommends that everything, which can be acted, will be acted is for several globalized organizations to consider.
In order to create a globalized economy, several organizations should not ignore the domestic consumer pattern and the culture of society of the location, in which they are going to enter. Considering the behavior of consumers is very important, when an organization thinks to globalize it business to the economies of other countries.
In this way, it is hereby concluded that globalization is an important concept for the large business entities. Globalization is the aspect, which has had an intense impact on all the key industries of the world. For understanding the current dilemma effectively, the involvement of globalization and many criticisms to it should be known by understanding its theoretical framework in the organization. Thus, it can be stated that globalization is the factor, which assist various business organizations in creating the brand image in other countries.
