Chapter 1: Introduction to the Handbook of Research Methods for Organisational Culture
Restricted access

The Handbook of Research Methods for Organisational Culture is a collection of works from talented researchers, highlighting the varied approaches and challenges associated with defining, researching, and measuring organisational culture. Beyond this introduction, the Handbook contains 18 chapters arranged in three sections: 1) Conceptual issues relating to organisational culture; 2) Quantitative and qualitative approaches; and 3) Special topics of organisational culture measurement. The overall body of work highlights the need to continue to unpack and understand organisational culture, to meaningfully influence the future effectiveness and efficiency of all types of organisations. The Handbook of Research Methods for Organisational Culture presents a valuable opportunity for researchers and practitioners to reflect on the complexity and the advancement of organisational culture research over time, and the new ways and contexts that we need to be aware of as we continue to create meaningful impact.
