Oraganizational theory: the multiple perspective on organizational

The Question To Be Answered:

‘What managers most often want to know about their organization’s culture is how to change it. Regardless of the perspective adopted, all organization culture researchers acknowledge that top managers are powerful members of an organization’s culture. And, because power grants them a disproportionate share of attention, their behavior becomes a role model for others, their words are carefully attended, and their directives are obeyed. But what is recommended to managers on the basis of culture theory differs markedly according to the perspectives adopted’ (Hatch and Cunliffe, 2013: 185).

 

Choose two of the four perspectives and discuss their different views on organisational culture and how their advice to managers who are seeking to influence organisational culture might be different.

  • The four perspectives are Modernism, Critical Theory, Symbolic Interpretive and Postmodernism.
  • I would pefer if focused on Modernism and Symbolic Interpretive.
  • Required word count 2000 words excluding the references.
