Abstract

This research examines how organisational culture has changed over a two-year period in an Irish SME. The culture within the SME is reviewed in the context of the four divisions operating within it. The concept of organisational culture is explored in the literature review in order to define the dimensions that culture can be measured against. For the purpose of this research, the Denison Organisational Culture Survey is used to define the culture of the SME in 2014. To establish what changes, if any, have occurred over a two-year period, both quantitative and qualitative research is carried out in 2016. The results of the research indicate that culture did indeed change over time and that the use of both quantitative and qualitative research methods gave a more holistic view of the culture. Furthermore, the results of the research indicate that whilst progress has been made in the SME in reframing its culture, it will continue to change overtime as it is an ever evolving process which involves input from everyone to make it a success.
