INTRODUCTION
Behavior of an organization encompasses various elements which are demanded for
effective functioning of a business. It covers the power, culture, role and management existing in
the company. It is further necessary or the entities to possess an organizational culture that
motivates employees. This motivation is highly required in effective functioning of the firm
(Carpenter, Berry, and Houston, 2014). The present report will cover all those that impacts upon
an organizational behavior. For this required leadership theories will be analyzed. Further,
significance of working in tem will be explained in this undertaking. Moreover, tactics of
improving performance of teams will be discussed.
The present report is based on the culture of BBC. The selected firm British Broadcasting
Corporation belongs to mass media sector. The entity was established 95 years ago and in
present date it is serving the people worldwide. Thus, in order to manage such a large company,
the power, role, culture, etc. should be effective. However, earlier from the report of Smith it has
been observed that the organizational behavior of the firm is affected due to some reasons. In this
assignment, these issues will be identified.
TASK 1
P1 (a) Using Handy’s cultural typology , identify and discuss the earlier culture of BBC.
As per Handy’s cultural typology, there are basically four types or cultures existing in antithetic
organization. These are role, power, task and person. In role culture, organizations are abided
with strict rules and regulations. All business operations are bases on certain roles and
responsibilities. In context to task culture, teams are formed in companies to address specific
projects. In case of the person culture, all the employees are regarded as significant assets
(Tuckman Forming Stormin Norming Performin model. 2017). Whereas in case of power culture,
the authority of influencing the overall organization is held by only few individuals,
In context to the selected company it has been observed from the reports that earlier the entity
had power culture. The high level authority of the entity used to influence the employees of
various departments. There are few rules and regulations in this culture. The power used of the

employers is the actual decision of the firm. There exist some benefits of implementing power
culture in an organization. However, it should be recognized that for the selected fir, this turned
toxic. It brought various adverse effects on the effectiveness of the working environment (Path-
Goal Theory of Leadership. 2017). The employers had started influencing employees negatively.
Further, negative impacts of this culture were observed in the wages of employees too. There
were many complaints regarding this issue were recorded. This has resulted in lower employee
motivation which is the major reason behind the work ineffectiveness that caused at that period.
P1 (b) Affect of culture, power, behavior in BBC
Earlier, the culture of the selected company was not effective. It has been observed that the lower
level employees were highly affected due to this organizational environment. The major reason
behind this type of business culture is the ineffective strategies and influence of high level
employers (What are the barriers of implementing performance managements?. 2017). In
addition to this it has been found that earlier in 1950s the legislation of the country was not much
effective in context to the employment. Besides this, the culture initially was centered on the
high level authority only. This disengagement of employee in decision-makings and other things
used to de-motivate employees. This impact of this reduced level of motivation is in turn affected
the work quality and performance. There are numerous affects caused due to the culture, power
and behavior. It has been observed form the reports that most of the women working in 1950s
have faced some form of sexual harassment (Pinder, 2014). From this information, it should be
considered that the inappropriate compliance with the laws plays a major role in damaging the
working culture. In addition to this, it has been observed that various complaints were filed
against the high level authorities by the lower level employees. This reflects the negative impacts
of the culture existing in that time. Further, the culture of the entity before was highly male
oriented. Females had received no or less importance in 1950-1960. Besides this significance and
respect, it has been noted that there were also large variations in the wages of males and females.
Moreover, a large number of sexual harassment cases were recorded for women working at that
time. However, it should be recognizing that later after the imposing of sexual harassments act
1975, equal rights acts, etc. this biasness’s were reduced (Miner, 2015).
