[Extract] Organizational culture can be defined as the institutionalizing processes which regulate cognitive, affective, and self-presentational aspects of membership in an organization. These processes also govern the means by which thought, perception, feeling and expression are shaped and hence encompass various auditory, textual, symbolic, physical and narrative forms. Examples of such means would include: organizational modes of communication (memoranda, telephone, email, interne, meetings, etc.), rituals, ceremonies, stories, myths, jargon, gossip, jokes, physical architecture, office layout, decoration and prevailing modes of staff dress.
