Abstract and Keywords

This chapter addresses the relationship between societal culture and organizational culture, exploring the most commonly discussed potential direction of influence (from society to organization) as well as a variety of alternatives, such as that there is no influence, or that organizational cultures can affect the broader society in which they emerge. Mechanisms by which these effects may occur are considered, along with two case examples (Gazprom in Russia, and the DaimlerChrysler merger and separation involving the United States and Germany) to explore interactions of societal and organizational culture. The chapter concludes with a discussion of several potential avenues for future research on this relationship, as well as acknowledgment of issues that may stand in the way of future research progress.

Keywords: ASA, isomorphic pressure, Meso, national culture, organizational founders
