A General Behavior Model and New Definitions of Organizational Cultures
Current definitions of organization/corporate cultures overemphasize long-run equilibrium and underplay short-run dynamics; they stress commonalities and overlook diversities, underscore emic analyses and lose sights of etic analyses, and separate the intangible from the tangible; plus are "model unfriendly." As an alternative approach addressing these problems, we propose a new General Behavioral Model (GBM) and then derive two new definitions of OC that view organizational cultures as  accumulated choices and  interactions among critical masses of people. Theoretical characteristics and managerial implications are discussed.
