When working with internal and external customers on a project, it is essential to pay close attention to relationships, context, history, and the corporate culture.

Project management



Corporate culture
Corporate culture refers to the beliefs, attitudes, and values that the organization’s members share and the behaviours consistent with them (which they give rise to) [1].



  1. Read Chapter 6 in the prescribed textbook (Web | PDF), (pages 45 – 47 in the PDF version).
    • Corporate culture differentiates organisations from each another, and dictates how members of the organisation will see you and interact with you. Often, projects too have their own ethos, work norms, and social conventions.
    • Think about how corporate culture can impact on a project, and what project managers can do to identify corporate culture. What does this mean for successful project management?
