For this Discussion, you will explore components associated with the establishment of organizational cultures. You will distinguish between operational components within an organization and cultural components within an organization. You will also evaluate how each component positively or negatively affects the organization as well as to what extent each component affects the organization.

  • Chapter 5, “When and How to Assess Your Culture” Schein, E. (2016) Edgar Schein explains culture fundamentals., . (2017). The key elements of business success from an operating perspective small business chronicle.

Post a cohesive response based on your analysis of the Learning Resources and your professional experience. In your post you should:

  • Delineate the operational components and the cultural components of the organization.
