The Organizational Level

  • Jan Pfister
Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)


Culture differs from organization to organization, department to department, and workgroup to workgroup.1 Culture influences what behavior is commonly accepted in the organization, and consequently builds a context for how controls are performed by organizational members. This chapter examines how social structures in the organization (whether workgroup, department, or organization) impact control behavior (see Fig. 6.1).
