corporate culture, uncertainty, organizational effectiveness
Organizational culture is examined as a response to environmental uncertainty and organizational effectiveness is examined in terms of that uncertainty. The dysfunctional effects of uncertainty on an organization are examined. Organizational culture is then developed as an approach by which management may proactively deal with these effects in a manner designed to bring about a higher level of organizational effectiveness. Several propositions are offered as descriptions of how this process can unfold and be managed.
