Amah, Edwinah, Daminabo-Weje, . Mildred


Managers desire an alternative control system that is reliable for the achievement of effectiveness in the organizations. Organizations need to be productive, profitable and increase their market share even with the challenge of coping with changes in the environment.  The need to achieve their goals has made managers seek for cultural means of motivating employees to be productive. The paper reviews literature on how corporate culture can be used to control and ensure organizational effectiveness. The paper concludes that the success of organizations to a very large extent depends on their cultures. The paper recommends that managers should put in place an adaptive culture that encourages the involvement of employees as this could enhance their responsiveness and commitment to the achievement of the organizational goals. Corporate Culture takes care of the need of close supervision as all hands are on deck to achieve the organization’s goal.  The paper also recommends that the managers should share the mission of the organization with employees as it could increase their involvement. Finally the paper recommends that the values of the organization be shared as well to serve as an informal control measure that can be very effective.

Key words: Corporate culture, Organizational effectiveness, Employee involvement, Employee control.
