culture type: command
Command cultures value certainty, precision, and dependability. Roles are clearly defined and systems and policies are in place to ensure that things are done the same way every time. Direction tends to come from the top and trickle down - so ideas within the organization may get lost. Focus is placed on process over people with the environment feeling structured and serious.
