Abstract

Explores how organizational culture is created, how it impacts and is impacted by the business, and how inclusion and participation become cultural norms. Discusses aspects needed for an inclusive, participative culture in terms of industrial democracy. Then, raises the challenge that evolutionary implementation of participative strategies won’t succeed. Concludes that we need to change our fundamental assumptions about human nature, organizational philosophy, and business strategy to self‐organization. Only then will participation work effectively
