Organizational structure :sample question

As mentioned in unit 1, a successful organization understands the cultural differences in various divisions or branches. It uses culture to overcome management challenges, implement strategic initiatives, and develop business opportunities.
Organizations with an exceptional culture are usually run by leaders who understand and practice effective cultural leadership principles. A culture or sub-culture that works effectively in one part of an organization may not work well in another. Those who have made it to the top have done so by building a high performance workplace around the corporate culture.
