“Organizational Culture” describes the values and behaviors of those within an organization. An organization’s culture entails philosophy, experiences, and expectations. The values of an organization are displayed through how the organization projects its image, conducts business with internal and external stakeholders, and the goals established for future success. According to Schein (2010), an organization’s culture is a pattern of shared basic assumptions that are learned by a group. The shared basic assumptions are the result of groups solving problems of external adaption and internal integration.
Strategic planning is necessary to ensure the culture change is successful. Implementing a cross-functional team allows for brainstorming new ideas. Total quality management provides solutions for process improvements by developing a vision, mission, and objectives.
The importance of creating a positive organizational culture is to foster creativity in becoming more innovative. Innovations can be fostered through enhancing group contributions to facilitate shared ideas. Group contributions allow ideas to be viewed from different perspectives. The various perspectives provide an opportunity to transition from stagnant processes while adhering to established guidelines.

“I believe there is a deficit in the truth today. Deception is everywhere because the listening parties do not understand the subject matter that is discussed. In order to identify deception, you have to find the facts, the evidence to determine the truth, the whole truth. The process I use to find the truth is to quickly obtain five different types of information from every injured party as well as every eye-witness. Two of the five types of information are completed once I arrive on site. The other three are completed by local management personnel according to pre-established procedures and guidelines. The evidence will lead you where you need to go, every time. It is a multiple piece puzzle scattered about. Typically, one key piece of evidence will solve the case. One key piece of information is the individual interviews. By knowing the background of the current scope of work and the steps to complete the specific work activity, I am confident that I know the expected response I am looking for from the individual questions.”
