In order to complete this task, this;paper establishes the framework or methodology for how we will conduct our research;gather data, conduct interviews and synthesize information researched, observed and;obtained from both on-site and off-site data gathering activities.;Culture comprises three related levels: artifacts, espoused values and basic underlying;assumption (Schein, 1992). Schein further defines culture as a set of basic assumptions;that define what we pay attention to, what things mean, how to react emotionally to what;is going on and what actions we need to take in various kinds of situations. In our;research we propose to integrate this model that defines an organizational culture, as the;framework for our methodology. Using this model will allow our framework;development to occur for the actual project research and presentation in a concise and;logical manner.;In our research and report-out process we will compile data from various business;research data bases (Lexus-Nexus, Business Premier), visit the corporate offices of the;target companyAmgen, observe the artifacts, the personnel and conduct a survey to;assist with ascertaining the espoused values of the culture. For the espoused values we;will compare the mission, vision statements and the management structure to our;observations and identified artifacts to understand their impact on shaping and defining;the culture. A cultural survey platform (dimensional) will be utilized to refine our;understanding of the culture. It is anticipated that this dimensional survey questionnaire;will be utilized to better quantify our observations and research. Finally, in our analysis;of the underlying assumptions we will use our own personal experiences and intuition or;hunches from being in and around the organization to synthesize our observations with;factual and emergent information. This will allow us to understand the behaviors and;values of the organization.;Table 1.0 outlines our methodology for conducting the organizational cultural analysis;and for the report-out process. The analysis plan has the team meeting at the organization;site on two separate locations. The first meeting will be conducted early in research;process (September time frame). Prior to the first meeting basic factual company;information will have been researched and analyzed. This information includes key;business information such as revenues, earnings, company size, affiliates, global expanse;and other key related business factors, key industry information such as competitors;position in industry, overall performance of industry, and key regulatory operating;parameters of the industry. This data will provide background understanding to the;observations and artifacts. During the first meeting the analysis team will tour the;campus while taking note of artifacts and observations. We anticipate limited formal;personnel interaction at this meeting.;A second and final meeting will be conducted several weeks later. During this;meeting the full application of organizational theory obtained via the masters of business;class in organizational behavior at CLU will be applied. The separation of the;organizational visits over the defining 4 to 6 week time period will allow the team ample;time to inculcate learned theory so as to apply it to the cultural analysis of the target;company. During the second meeting interviews with identified personnel will be;conducted and full documentation of the points outlined in Table 1.0, sections 4 through;6 (Artifacts to Assumptions) will be assessed. A project plan or timeline will be;developed to manage the project and to ensure all deliverables are executed per plan.;Shortly after conducting our first on-site organizational visit we will build and route;the survey to the intended personnel. It is anticipated that by or shortly after the second;site visit we will have received the targeted number of survey responses (N > 30%) to;allow a valid conclusion for our combined observations, assessments and survey;responses. We will then develop our project presentation as outlined below.;Presentation Organization;Discuss the organization and layout of the pptyou may want to develop the construct;how many sections, section headers The powerpoint should simply follow the;methodology as detailed above.;Bibliography;Schein, Edgar.
