Negotiated order and organizational culture represent two of the major recent approaches to the study of organizational life. Both of them focus on the actor's perspective on life in an organization, and they are complementary, even though they have rarely been brought together. They emphasize worker satis- faction and commitment and the noneconomic, nonrational working of orga- nizations.
