Barriers to organisational change: the role of culture

Burnes B (1991) Barriers to organisational change: the role of culture, Management Research News, 14 (1/2), pp. 24-29.

First paragraph: Organisational culture has been a recurring theme in the literature on organisations over the last decade. Indeed, it sometimes seems almost impossible to find a book or journal without some reference, albeit often superficial, to the curative and restorative powers of organisational culture. The literature is studded with oft-repeated phrases which still trip neatly off the tongue: "a strong culture makes a strong organisation...." (Handy, 1986:188), even when the context has been forgotten.
