Every time I go to a successful battalion, I am struck by how well the things are going on and the sense of leadership in which all personnel are eager to be a member of that battalion. Also I was taken by surprise by the delightful and energetic people around me. Maybe it was the commander itself who has been involved in the formation of that kind of organization. So I thought that leaders must be aware of their critical role by understanding the role of O.C culture in managing the organizations. Although it is difficult to define the concept of O.C it would help the leaders to solve some problems in their efforts to stimulate learning and change. “ Cultural analysis illuminates sub cultural dynamics within organizations ”. The concept of O.C not only has become a part of organization level analysis, but also it has aided understanding of what goes on inside organizations. Also corporate culture is the key factor in achieving a high-performance organization. An effective culture can enable organizations to perform better and it can be beneficial in adapting to new conditions with an appropriate strategy. Military culture is somewhat different from the others by encompassing both the change and continuity in some aspects. Like in all organizations the social evolution process takes places in military organizations too. But the military espouses conservative, moralistic ideology as reflected in its ethics and customs.
