fgi Model of Culture
Organizational culture influences the operations of a company in a barely noticeable yet effective manner. It shapes its processes and structures, forms of working and ways of cooperation.
Making the impact of culture visible requires a well-grounded understanding of the core elements and the functions of culture. Here, the fgi model of culture which incorporates and bundles research results of numerous sciences (incl. organizational and cross-cultural research, sociology, anthropology) serves as a basis in each cultural analysis.
The foundation of culture comprises values, basic assumptions and norms.
In principle, the fgi model of culture distinguished between two functions of organizational culture.
- Culture unites people.
- Culture shapes our relationships.
Organizational cultures additinally vary in their strength and consistency.
