Stronger organizational cultures drive better organizational performance.

What is it about?

This paper clearly distinguishes organizational culture from organizational climate in conceptual terms and shows empirical evidence for that distinction.

Why is it important?

Culture is a deeper construct than climate. It is less changeable and more subtle.
