It was found that the company had devised ways to make the new comers as a part of the original values of the company. The new comers were not asked about their insights about the running of the company. There were outlets that asked for feedback but more efforts were taken to make the employees a part of the existing culture of the company. There was very little to no efforts taken to take in newer ideas of the employees.
Another important aspect that needs to be probed when considering the organizational culture is the inherent patriarchal notions and the way in which the organizational culture is construed. According to Marsick, Bitterman & van der Veen, (2000), it was found that this particular organizational assumes that knowledge management and training revolves around providing the employees with training regarding the technology used for the company. This is one of the most common assumptions made by the organizations. They assume that by providing insights about the technical aspects of the company they have provided with adequate training. This is however not true. There should be training given about the overall objective of the company and the training should be focused on creation of a shared beliefs (Marsick , Bitterman & Van der Veen, 2000).
From analysis of the organizational culture using the theoretical models, it can be understood that the organization has a number of factors that it is doing right. They provide adequate training to handle the requirements of the company. The reasons for the company to provide these training modules are to make the employee meet their primary objective. They have also been so far successful in meeting the requirements. However, they try to change the employees to meet the demands that they deem to be important. Even though this has been productive to enhance the productivity they need to create a situation, where the newcomer’s views are also heard. They need to foster an environment that allows the newcomers opinions to be created along with the shared vision of the company.
