Jagannath Mohant and Bhabani P. Rath

Abstract—Since the liberalization in 1991 in India, the industries have gone through a massive change. The Indian companies have also made rapid strides in merging and acquiring foreign companies to improve them and survive in the highly demanding corporate world. The work culture and the mindset of people have also dramatically changed over the past two decades. The introduction of foreign products has improved the quality of the local products. The lifestyle has also witnessed a major shift from the pre – liberalization years. Thus the changes that are occurring worldwide are very important and forcing organizations to change. Therefore the change agent working in a traditional organizational development framework, describing culture is the first step in a rational change process which involves moving an organization from ‘here’ to ‘there’. For the practitioner who works from a complex or living systems perspective, describing culture is also as a key part of the change process itself. The paper is an attempt to investigate as to how much a given Organizational Culture can predict the prevalent Organizational Citizenship Behaviors in three different sectors namely, Manufacturing, Banking and Information Technology.

Index Terms—Organizational culture, organizational citizenship behavior, correlation.
