We believe that organizational culture is....simply the personality of a company that contributes to a company's sense or order, continuity and community.  As a whole, it is the prevailing values, attitudes, beliefs, artifacts, and behaviors.  By using the Competing Values Framework Methodology developed by Cameron and Quinn, we will engage in activity that defines 4 culture types, helps determine your own cultureand how the knowledge of these culture types can assist in communication and design.

Course objectives:
