Sarah Perkins ENGRC 335: Log 1a: an organization’s three cultures 1. Schein defines culture as the assumptions about the world shared by a group. Each culture has its own view on how the world is and ought to be. The three cultures Schein discusses are operator culture, engineering culture, and executive culture. Conflicts can occur between each culture due to lack of alignment, lack of trust and openness, lack of understanding, different goals, and dissimilar language between cultures. 2. Operational culture is based on operational success. Operator culture varies significantly across organizations because it evolves within organizations and units. The knowledge needed is specialized to the organization’s technology. Operators work as teams, each working on an individual part of the whole; so openness, trust, and commitment are highly valued. Operators must learn to think on their feet and learn to deal with the surprises In engineering culture designers and technocrats drive core technologies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
