At Walking the Talk, we love making explanations and definitions as simple as possible. As such, we define culture as ‘the patterns of behaviours that are encouraged, discouraged and tolerated by people and systems over time’. Every company has its own culture, whether they know it or not, and whether they choose to manage it or not.
