It is not untrue to say that the best laid plans will come to nought if workplace culture acts as a barrier rather than as an enabler to their achievement! Much has been written in business literature and academic journals about the impact of organisation culture on business success. Hence, a supervisory manager must be able to diagnose the impact of behavioural norms and elements of culture on employee productivity.

In this lesson, we first examine culture in the workplace and then explore how organisation culture impacts supervisors who are tasked with driving forward change initiatives.
