Organizational Culture and Time.
Tierney, William G.
Writers have noted how the concept of time is a key component of organizational behavior. This paper argues that an interpretive perspective on organizational culture provides a useful framework within which to consider time. The paper differentiates between rationalist and cultural conceptions of time and lays out a framework for organizational time as an element of culture. The article concludes with suggestions for administrators with regard to the cultural context of time. The document includes 25 references. (Author/RG)
