Has organizational culture now replaced organizational structure as the dominant method of management control in organizations?
As we can see, in the last 20 years, the type of applicable management over organizational structure is changing due to many factors like the turbulent business and political environments, in order to keep an organization successful and so its goals can be met. Many organizations that started growing wanted and needed that recipe of success that until now few big successful organizations had. Management theory until now thought that power is ascribed to positions rather than to the individuals holding those positions (Weberâ€™s idea of bureaucracy). It was

Organizational Structure and Culture
Organizational structure can be defined as the establishment of authority and the arrangement of the work group. Classical theorists developed the concept of departmentalization as a means to maintain command, reinforce authority, and provide a formal system for communication (Sullivan & Decker, 2009). Designs of an organization can either be structured vertically or horizontally; subdividing work, specifying tasks, and fitting people into a plan.

How Can Management Strengthen the Organizational Culture?
There is a subtle link between expectancy, effort, productivity and reward. Werner (2002, p.335) states that “a person will exert a high effort if he/she believes there is reasonable probability that the effort will lead to the attainment of an organizational goal, and the attainment of the organizational goal will become an instrument through which that person will attain his/her personal goals.” If this is the case with employees, one would thus conclude that 0rganizational goals will be elevated above personal goals, and this may account for the use of incentives and rewards to recognize the effort made by employees.

What is Culture?
Basically, organizational culture is the personality of the organization. Culture is comprised of the assumptions, values, norms and tangible signs (artifacts) of organization members and their behaviors. Members of an organization soon come to sense the particular culture of an organization. Culture is one of those terms that's difficult to express distinctly, but everyone knows it when they sense it. For example, the culture of a large, for-profit corporation is quite different than that of a hospital which is quite different than that of a university.

create ethical dilemmas for their employees. The increased pressure on an organization to perform and higher than normal unemployment are a recipe for increased unethical behavior by an organization and its members.
Ethical issues are also a major concern in organizational behavior because individual influences impact the ethical behavior. The organizations leadership is in a position to influence the ethical behavior of its employees by establishing the right culture.
Ethical Issues in Organizations
The traditional viewpoint on facilitating ethical behavior within an organization is to assume that the individuals alone are responsible for misconduct, either illegal or unethical
