The McGinty and Moss culture survey identifies a lot of pitfalls for this type of culture. Even though most communication channels takes place at highest organization level, supervision does not frequently indicate feedback interest from all ranks (Flamholtz, and Randle, 2011). In addition to making announcements from administration, regular opinions should be asked so that information which is essential should not be missed by the staff. The Moss and McGinty culture survey also says to be cautious that the organization does not talk about change processes for a long time that you miss critical chances to change for the good of the organization. Be aware of the cultural inference of fostering competition within an organization. According to them, competition that takes place internally can result in discontent that drives the cost turnover. The Dension Cultural Inventory (DCI) is another cultural assessment tool which can be employed to identify the culture of the organization. This inventory summarizes four categories that can be used in identifying the culture of the organization. They include, mission, involvement, consistency, and adaptability.

    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.
