TASK 1
P1. Organisational culture, power and political behaviour of managers affect behaviour of staff
within BBC.
Culture, power and politics in any organisation plays significant role (Dooley, 2014).
Thus, the culture, power and political behaviour in BBC that affects staff has been discussed as
per below context-
Culture
Organisational culture is termed as norms, values and beliefs and also assumptions that are
practiced in a particular organisation. This further helps in bringing stability and also control
within BBC.
The culture of BBC has been discussed in four different types that includes the following-
Power- In this type of culture, power is held by few individuals. They are the one who
spreads their influence through the whole organisation. In this there are rules and
regulations as the one having power will decide about all happenings in BBC. Employees
of cited organisation are judged according to achievement rather than their actions.
Role- If there is availability of such culture in BBC, they will have to follow certain rules.
In this culture, the role or position of a person determines the power in BBC. The
decision making in this culture is slow and takes less amount of risks.
Task- this type of culture is formed when they need to accomplish a common objective or
a common task. Task plays an important role, so power within a particular team of BBC
will shift depending on team members and status of problem and project.
Person- In person culture, individuals feel themselves as the most unique and important
to BBC. The organisation that follows this type of culture is nothing but the collection of
individuals that happens to be working for organisation.
Thus, it depends on type of culture that is basically created in an organisation. It can also have
positive and also negative effect on performance of an employee. Thus, in such type of cultures,
employees of BBC are therefore committed in order to achieve goals and thus have a positive
effect on the overall performance of an organisation.

particular work against their will of doing it. It is associated in a positive way in BBC
with the behaviour that is punitive. And negative that is associated with conditional
