The Social Construction of Organizations

A posting by Lisa Haneberg on the social construction of organizational culture got me thinking of one of my favorite college texts, Berger and Luckmann's The Social Construction of Reality.

An organization's culture is certainly socially constructed. And the work is never ending. It's going on right now in fact.

The work began when the organization was founded. The footings and frameworks for the culture were put in place by the first leaders. As the years went by, all of the succeeding employees left their mark.

How about you? What mark will you leave on your organization? What difference are you making right now in "the way things are done" around your organization?
