Abstract

Change initiatives that fail have often ignored the subtle yet vital difference between organizational culture and organizational climate. Here, Eli Sopow distinguishes between the two and reflects of the impact of each on change programs. The key, he says, is to change the day‐to‐day practices that contribute to the overall climate, while holding onto the positive elements of the culture that make employees feel secure.
