  • Reader Information On Plague And Medieval Europe
    902 words
    Review of The Black Death The Black Death discusses the causes and results of the plague that devastated medieval Europe. It focuses on the many effects it had on the culture of medieval Europe and the possibility that it expedited cultural change. I found that Robert S. Gottfried had two main theses in the book. He argued that rodent and insect life cycles, as well as the changing of weather systems affect plague. He claimed that the devastation plague causes is partly due to its perpetual recu...

    1,451 words
    What is the nature and substance of organisational culture To what extent can it be changed Culture, "the acquired knowledge that people use to interpret experience and generate social behaviour" (Spradley, 1979, p. 5), provides people with a way of seeing the world. It categorizes, encodes, and otherwise defines the world in which they live. Whenever people learn a culture, they are to some extent imprisoned without knowing it.

  • Unplanned Cultural Change

    Competitive pressures caused by globalization, deregulation, and discontinuous technological changes seem to have forced many organizations into considering radical change as a way of surviving and growing. A big part of this radical change has to do with accepting and handling cultural differences among other nations. Organizations pursue change to enhance their competitive positions and to grow. Cultural Change Culture changes over time, despite the fact that one of the more important attribut...

    1.1 INTRODUCTION British Airways came into existence in 1935, when smaller privately owned UK airlines merged. Another change occurred when the Government nationalized British Airways and Imperial Airways to form BOAC - The British Overseas Airways Corporation.

There appears to be little in the way of strateg...

  • Cultural Understanding Of Market

    Global and Domestic Marketing Cultural: Globalization is an inevitable process, and so are the inevitable issues with different cultures. On the one hand, the world is becoming more homogeneous, and distinctions between national markets are not only fading but, for some products, will disappear altogether. This means that cultural difference is a global issue, not just the United States. On the other hand, the differences among nations, regions, and ethnic groups in terms of cultural factors are...
  • Most Prominent Change In American Popular Culture
    1,094 words
    While studying the many aspects of popular culture; the highs and the lows, the fads and the popular trinkets of the times, I found myself looking for some distinct trend. A trend that would almost explain the urbanization and mixture of American culture into one entity as it seems today. The times came and went, the people and their goods increased and found success in various forms of business, but it all had to depend upon a central trend. There had to be something linking these people and th...

  • Cultures As Start Up Companies
    475 words
    When I see companies, I see different cultures. Each company has its unique culture, which probably represent almost everything about the company. The culture not only distinguishes a company from another company but also it sets values and norms that employees follow. Company's culture has everything to do with its success or failure. For example, Nantucket Nectars's founders, Tom First and Tom Scott, deliberately made things as informal as possible at the beginning. There were no hierarchy, no...

  • Member Of A Baseball Team Culture
    796 words
    "The way we do things around here" is the key phrase in defining organizational culture. Culture is comprised of the pervasive attitudes, values, and norms of a company. According to Hagberg and Heifetz, the people who can truly identify an organization's culture are outsiders- new hires, consultants, et cetera ("Corporate"). This occurs through a process called nor ming, where employees are immersed in the corporate environment and take on attitudes that are prevalent within the organization. T...
