Abstract

This article focuses on organizational culture in construction industry. The common practice in procuring construction could be explained as a tripartite system. The three parties are the employer, the consultant and the contractor, whose mutual responsibilities are defined by contractual and professional obligations. Organizational culture is identified as a collective programming of the mind which distinguishes members of one organization from another. In construction industry, it can be considered as a cumulative representation of an assortment of elements. There are four organizational culture types: clan, adhocracy, market and hierarchy.
