Languages of publication
A lively and changing organizational culture can become the reason for the flourishing of an organization or be the driving force of its biggest difficulties. Therefore, as form of representation of an organization, organizational culture has to be formed intentionally as all too often it is common to encounter a dysfunctional culture in many areas. This publication attempts to look at the essence of organizational culture and the dysfunctions in organizations that result from the culture. The analyses carried out in this article are a result of the review of foreign and home literature, providing the basis for further discussions on the subject.
