How can a corporation’s structure and culture be internal strengths or weaknesses? Explain in detail and provide an example of each.
Corporate structure and culture has its advantages and disadvantages. An organizational structure is a framework that helps the employees achieve organizational goals. For example if an organization has a functional structure, all the decisions would be made at the top level which would add to the stability of the organization. But at the same time interdepartmental conflicts can increase as the communication between different departments deteriorate in such organizational structure (Magloff, 2015).
Corporate culture can also effect an organization either way. For example if an organization has develop a culture is based on the values of respect and cooperation, the employees would be motivated to work hard towards the achievement of the corporate goals. But if the culture is not based on these values, the employees would not be able to have a productive attitude towards their duties.
