There may be variations of an organisation’s culture within the groupings that make up an organisation. For example, IT departments are renowned for developing their own sub-cultures. 4, adapted from Johnson and Scholes (1999)4 shows how the main elements of cultural identity interact to form the predominant cultural mindset that people share in an organisation. The cultural identity of an organisation straddles the informal and the formal structure. Those who have formal power in an organisation may try to change the existing culture but within the informal structure there will also be those who have some power or inﬂuence and who will seek to sway actions or decisions in a self-interested way.
Are these claims justiﬁed by what we actually do? 2 provides an indication of the drivers that are likely to relate to each of the STEEPLE dimensions for the near and far external contexts, though you should not take these as deﬁnitive and exhaustive. Also, not all the dimensions or drivers will have equal signiﬁcance for any particular organisation, so it is important to seek to identify those that are likely to have most signiﬁcance for you and your organisation. For instance, a local government organisation is likely to be less affected by economic globalisation in the economic dimension when compared with a manufacturing business, though it is likely to be more strongly affected by changes in local policy in the political dimension.
By ‘near’ we don’t just mean closer geographically, but also closer to the organisation in terms of interactions and inﬂuences.

There may also be some geographically ‘near’ factors that you wish to consider in this analysis; indeed, some of the factors just mentioned may fall into that category.
