Abstract

This thesis examines the concept of Culture on a key business unit of Iarnrod Eireann. We follow the development of the concept of Culture in the literature review and bring it forward to more modern thinking that sees it as more than just an inner organisational concern. The primary research is drawn from a number of diverse individuals who were willing to share their views of culture and its implementation. They assisted in the analysis of what was right and wrong about the culture in DART. The results of the thesis highlight many issues such as understanding of the concept of culture and desire to implement it properly but many obstacles exist such staff resistance and lack of skills in certain aspects of management. The conclusion from the research is that while the knowledge and desire does exist in the business to improve the culture for both staff and management, the skill sets for all managers will have to be developed to achieve this objective successfully.
