Question Description

I’m trying to study for my Business course and I need some help to understand this question.

  • Chapter 10: Do you think it is possible for an outsider to accurately discern about the underlying cultural values of an organization by analyzing symbols, ceremonies, dress, or other observable aspects of culture in comparison to an insider with several years of work experience? Select a percentage (e.g., 10%, 70%, etc.) and explain your reasoning.
  • Chapter 11: A noted organization theorist once said, "Pressure for change originates in the environment. Pressure for stability originates within the organization." Do you agree?
  • Chapter 12: If managers frequently use experience and intuition to make complex, non-programmed decisions, how do they apply evidence-based management (which seems to suggest that managers should rely on facts and data)?
  • Chapter 13: In a rapidly changing organization, are decisions more likely to be made using the rational or political model of organization?
  • What biblical implications should be included/addressed?
  • How can/should a biblical worldview be applied?

You are required to provide a thread to the main forum. The thread must be 1,000–1,500 words, must include at least 3 peer-reviewed references, and must demonstrate course-related knowledge.

Chapter 10:
An outsider can discern the cultural values of an organization by analyzing observable
aspects such as symbols, ceremonies, and dressing, among others. However, an insider who has
been in the organization for a significant period is in a better position of discerning the
underlying cultural values. In this case, the proportion of accuracy between the outside and the
insider is 30% and 70%, respectively. The insider has worked in the organization for several
years, and this implies that he/she knows the organizational culture in and out (Shapira, 2012).
On the other hand, an outsider can look at different observable aspects in the organization, and
he can get some clue of what the cultural values of the organizations entail. It is possible to
notice the way of doing things and employees’ behavior from a single visit, but different aspects
are deeply embedded that one needs to be part of the organization to notice and understand.
There are multiple elements of culture in an organization, and an outsider can only notice
the observable aspects. He will not be able to get the bigger picture of the cultural values of an
organization. Cultural values also entail language and beliefs, and an insider has detailed
information on the entire organizational culture of the firm. Therefore, an insider has a deeper
understanding of both the material and the non-material culture of an organization compared to
an outsider who has limited knowledge of cultural values...
