IQ Indicate that candidates know what organizational culture is (although an explicit definition such as “the way we do things around here “is not required) Make it clear that candidates know what shared values and taken for granted assumptions *skiff are (shared values are the norms of behavior which run throughout the company – they can been seen as high profile symbols and may be deliberately fostered by senior management; taken-for-granted assumptions are ore informal and develop over time often in the form of low profile symbols such as rites, rituals, stories, physical symbols, common language, etc).
Definitions are not required as long as answers, through examples and their Justification, make it clear that candidates are aware of the difference. Give an example from GAG of shared values (such as quality, excellence and innovation) and taken-for-granted assumptions for games and software development) and link to business development, expansion and quality. Answers should use a specific model of culture such as Deal and Kennedy, Handy, Trampers.
It should be clear from the answer that the candidate can explain why she has chosen the type of culture they have. Candidate should identify another type of culture from the model they have already used. There is no need to Justify the choice. To be acceptable, answers should draw at least one point of contrast between the two typeset of culture and show explicitly how it could affect GAG. The impact must be specific and credible as far as the company is concerned.
A general point of contrast between the two typeset is not acceptable. Answers should comment on the relationship. One substantive point with justification would be sufficient. For example, culture and behavior seem consistent, shared values permeated¤ through the company through, for example accessible senior managers.
