Example text

EXPANDING THE FIELD OF ORGANIZATIONAL ANTHROPOLOGY 17 Connolly (see Chapter 5, Neurological Model of Organizational Culture), on the other hand, is interested in continuing the study of organizational culture but learning to understand culture through neuroscience. How do humans actually learn and share cultural meanings? How are individual agency, collective meaning dissemination, and institutional outcomes actually linked? In an attempt to answer these questions, she studies the neurological processes in the brain to determine what happens when a person perceives what they see as reality, as meaningful.

Collins’s research approach is empirical, focusing on major corporations that have been successful over a long period of time which he then studies in detail to find what they have in common (Collins 2001). The commonalities are loosely woven into a theoretical framework which features a “culture of discipline” as the key feature. Collins suggests that the culture of bureaucracy (Weber 1947) is the wrong culture for a sustainable organization. He rejects the hierarchical model and endorses an organizational culture of discipline and of entrepreneurship.
