Globalization Comes with New Organizational Cultures

Organizational culture adapts to the difficult but necessary transformation to a global economy. The process of changing the rooted domestic culture is difficult when time tested processes are embedded with deep beliefs of ones identity. Organizations change based on necessity but workers are often dragged behind these changes.

Globalization has an impact on the culture of all organizations that play in that arena. Change often occurs because previous work patterns become ineffective and new processes are created to meet those challenges. As processes change, the way people think changes and new cultures are formed (Rizescu &Tileague, 2017).

Developing a global culture within an organization means the organization is exposed to global pressures and traversing through growing pains to meet those new challenges. New mentalities, new ideas, and different perspectives must arise to ensure the company can compete in a bigger "ball park". 

Naturally, there will be those who will fight the process all the way and there will be those willing to learn but have no idea how to work in a global environment. Having a vision and plan for restructuring and training is necessary. If there are employees and executives fight "tooth and nail" to keep the Status Que there may need to be some personnel changes.

While it may seem like change will never come it eventually will. It is not easy to change peoples minds and have them view their roles in new ways. Yet with new ideas, processes and expectations there will eventually be solidification of acceptance. That acceptance puts the organizations on a higher level of functioning. When people are thinking beyond domestic production and acting according to a bigger vision you know that change is thorough.
