I. BACKGROUND and SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS:
When discussing the organizational culture of FMC Aberdeen, commonly held business models need to be discarded. This is an organization that bases existence on trust. Trust in the employee workgroups, trust in the managers, trust in the organization and trust in the process. The only comparable unit would be a family. Every function within the plant relies upon the others for successful completion of assigned tasks. And, within this, accountability is held by each group. If the workgroup succeeds, the project succeeds and therefore the plant succeeds. It is somewhat a collectivism culture in that the group is always more important than the individual and the norms stress group rather than individual interests.
