Culture Assignment (40 Points Total—8% of Your Grade)


Find or take a picture of some aspect of your organization (i.e., a logo, the people, a product of the work that is done there, etc.) that captures the culture of the organization. It can be a picture of an organization in which you are currently employed or have been employed in the past. It can be a picture of a non-work-related organization to which you belong or have belonged in the past (i.e., a church, sports/recreational organization, volunteer organization, etc.). Below the picture (if the picture is pasted into a Word document) or in a separate Word document, provide a written explanation of the culture, discussing specific characteristics of the culture, the strength of the culture, the positive or negative impact that the culture has on the organization, etc. Use references to support your discussion. Cite your references within your discussion and include the full citations for your references on your Reference page at the end of your document, following the APA Guidelines that I provided you in Doc Sharing. Submit your completed assignment to the appropriate dropbox. You will probably want to read ahead (Chapter 15 on Organizational Culture) before completing this assignment.
