An Overview of the Concept of Organisational Culture
Sandro Serpa
Abstract: Organisational culture may be considered as the shared way of being, thinking and acting in a collective of coordinated people with reciprocal expectations; it is shaped, disseminated, learned and changed over time, providing some predictability in every organisation. This study seeks to contribute to a clarification of the concept of organisational culture, so often defined in different ways and with distinct guidelines for application. Results allow concluding that this interdisciplinary concept is ultidimensional and its mobilisation involves being aware of scientific implications, either theoretical or methodological, involved in its apprehension and analysis, so as to better control these complexities.
