Leadership Library: Edgar Schein’s Organizational Culture & Leadership

08.17.11

In Organizational Culture & Leadership, Edgar Schein – a former professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management who has made a notable mark on the field of organizational development – transforms the abstract concept of culture into a tool used to shape organizations and ignite change. Schein is credited with inventing the term “corporate culture” and has designed the framework for the organizational culture model that identifies three distinct levels in organization culture: artifacts and behaviors, espoused values, and assumptions. Schein’s insights help redefine culture and demonstrate the importance of the leader’s role in using culture change efforts to achieve organizational goals.
