In the present assignment, chosen organisation is 4 com Plc which is aSME that provides telecommunication service to its customers, enabling them to call, text, accessthe internet, stream music and videos. The project report will emphasis on how an organisation'sculture, politics and power influence individual and behaviour of team.

Together they create an environment that will influence communication of people,plan of organisation and decision making of management. Culture of organisation is defined byits people who come from different backgrounds, environment and different mindset (Osabiya,B.J., 2015). To get the better understanding of culture, let us understandHandy model oforganisation culture (Alleyne, 2016).This theory is based on two concepts which is powerdistribution and corporation level. The different kinds of combinations results in differentcultures-Role culture – Less corporation and less distribution of powerRole culture has inflexible rules, obligations and complex process. The authority andresponsibilities are clear in the organisation and position of an individual is more important thansomeone's effective performance which mean even a subordinate performed better than itssuperior, superior would get reward.Management of tasks takes pace by clear job description. Ina role culture, an employee wants security and stability.Power culture – Distribution of power is less and corporation level is high
The culture involves a structure that has two way communication suggestions fromsubordinates as well as commands from superiors.The communication is coordinated by highauthority.The owner finds it difficult to delegate decision making. In this type of culture, thecooperation levelbetween employer and employee is high and performance of individual and asteam are important. (Alshmemri, 2017).Person culture – Low Corporation and high power distributionThis culture is people oriented where workers have complete freedom, and have goodacademics and are specialized in their work.There are few rules and procedures. In this culturethe responsibilities are unclear and coordination problem arises.Task culture – corporation level is high and distribution of power is highIn this culture, employees are highly experienced professionals and solve their problemson their own. They are highly motivated and want to complete their task correctly.The powerlies with everyone working in the firm.The other model that can be used isHofstede culture theorywhich deals in dimension ofcross culture. It depicts the impact of culture of society to individual's values. Some aspect ofthis theory are -Individualism vs collectivism –A society have cohesiveness and loyalty among each other ifthey are few as the number of people increase it leads to conflicts, dominance. In company theemphasis on developing skills and to get intrinsic rewards.Masculinity vs Femininity –it defines hoe the roles of male and female are compiled with theirvalues. In the culture where role is not defined and men are dominating and women aresuppressed it lead to less effectiveness in performance.Low uncertainty avoidance vs high uncertainty avoidance –if the organisation has lowuncertainty avoidance it adapts the uncertainness easily and hence do not get affected in workand operations.Short term vs long term orientation– This rule is based on traditions. Short trem orientationlead to creativity and individualism in the firm.Among these cultures,4com plc uses task cultureas it has expertise for each team whohelps the individuals to get better in what they do. The level of cooperation between the teamincreases. In 4com plc,employees use their own intelligence and skills and also help their
