Question 1: Organisations (or corporate) culture is often considered an important component of successful organisations. Examine how managers can develop a positive culture in their organisation. Give at least two (2) examples of what managers can do to create a positive culture that will increase the success of the organisation. The developing business world is full of successful, ingenious and innovative plans devised by creative minds and processes to achieve business goals. This leads to managers in today’s society and the involvement of success in organisations through the work of creative culture and the development of an effective Human Resources Team (HRT). Creative culture which is prioritised in an organisation will foster, innovative idea’s resulting in experimental trials to be developed to improve previous processes and structures within organisations. This in turn develops new business processes, which will improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the organisation. Managers in organisations that use this form of trial and error or creative culture can employ the true potential of input and output of employee’s and processes. It is vital for organisations to use managers to develop positive culture, in order to be successful. Pitta, Wood and Franzak (2008) state that organisations that value creativity as an integral part of the organisations culture will be able to develop thriving processes which leads to attaining intended goals desired by the organisation. “The ability to be creative is now a decisive source of competitive advantage.

Furthermore the drawbacks stated by Pitta, Wood and Franzak (2008) are when managers and top executives fail to prioritise creative culture as a fundamental part of a successful organisation. It is stated that “creativity and innovation helps companies become leaders in their field.” (Pitta, Wood and Franzak, 2008, p.147) There are many ways that managers can create positive culture. Another successful way in creating positive culture can be demonstrated in the organisations Human Resource Teams (HRT). Academics have stated that managers who effectively create a successful (HRT) can create and sustain positive culture within new and existing employees. Organisations new and old understand that the recruitment of employees who fit an organisations culture determines the quick success of an organisation. While there are many ways to improve an organisations success there is only one indicator that can reinforce the speed of how that success is achieved. This is viewed in the effectiveness of organisations Human Resources Team (HRT) which develop the initial culture...
