    Using symbolic interactionist theory, the author is seeking to center the OD conversation in the dynamics of not just organizational change, but cultural identities and boundaries. Using an Israeli owned company located in South Korea, the focus is on how the culture of a kibbutz based organization (with socialist cultural tendencies) affects the collectivism culture of employees in South Korea. While collectivism is present in both, the Israeli focus is on community and the S. Korean has issues with power distance, per Hofstede. The interactions are corporate, workplace cultural changes, and Korean culture. This is a case study using grounded theory and interpretations and discovery of work concepts were the focus of examination. When processing the information, the author found the expected dimensions of power distance, uncertainty, and collectivism as issues. During organizational change, there are other expected focuses in terms of management style and company vs national culture. Family orientation and gender relations were also part of the issues discovered as the S. Koreans attempted to assimilate into the different style of collectivism presented in the changes happening. Using participative management was used to power the change because it is more human relations based and is more likely to increase both productivity and job satisfaction.

Training and development are expected, but the organization needed to find a systematic approach to changes and training to keep up with the new technologies needed. A collaborative approach was used and communication and learning were part of the organizational change, including its culture.
