Culture of McDonald's

QUESTION:
Look at the culture of McDonald's. How does the culture of the people either help the strategic plan of the company, the vision and mission really happen, or how the culture gets in the way, or a bit of both.

ADDITIONAL INFO
For example, it might be that say the Army is starting new Stryker brigades and this brings together people of very different MOS categories. Health Care folks may not think quite the way that infantry or other combat arms MOS types do. I've seen differences in culture and attitudes depending on where people are from. When you mix people up, when you change the STRUCTURE, you can put different CULTURES together and it may not mix. Look what happened to AOL/time Warner. not only was that a bad deal on a million levels, but when AOL a new young entrepreneurial risk taking type culture met up with a stodgy old do as your told top down authoritarian culture it was oil and water; did not mix.

So write about the culture of McDonald's and how recent events have shown that the attitudes of the people, the values of the employees (a culture is a system of shared values; we all value risk taking, we all value being conservative and not taking a risk for example) hindered or helped the strategic plan.

Thank you.
