August 15, 2011 Case Analysis 1 A Tale of Two Cultures People with a unity or an organization are the driving force for cultures. “Organizational culture is the set of values that controls behavior, determines how organizational members interpret the environment, and helps achieve a competitive advantage.” (Jones, 2010) Since people are what make up a culture then most companies need to embrace the cultures that their employees bring with them. These companies also have the power from newcomers of inspiration that are formed through organizational culture. In this case analysis I will discuss the differences between Southwest’s and Value Line’s cultures. Southwest’s culture is that of a more predominant soft nurtured, caring culture. They have succeeded in maintaining good customer relations and the management teams are respectful of all the employees. Southwest seems to have an informal structured type of culture that prompts creativity, and an incentives program for employee recognition and performance.

    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.
