Organizational Culture





Overview of the global company

I work for McDonald’s Corporation, which is a fast-food company. This is a global company with branches and stores in almost every corner of the world. In fact, it is ranked among the leading organizations in the organization. The company operates more than 30,000 restaurants in about 100 countries (Gould, 2010). The expansive nature of the company has positioned itself in a very good financial position. The company owns one of the most respected foods and coffee brands in the world. To a larger extend, McDonald’s has changed the eating habits of Americans.

A succinct overview of the fictitious domestic company merged with

MadCup is a multinational company that offers coffee selling and delivery services across the United States. The company has got more than 1000 shops in America, offering coffee restaurant services. McDonald’s seeks to merge with MadCup Company so as to be able to pull resources together and tap the available domestic market needs. Their very strong clientele guides the company operations. Such a growing customer base has overstrained the company’s ability, and this is one of the reasons that have made the company seek a merger. Considering that the two companies are in the same industry, the merger would effectively work to unify their cultures.

8–10 point checklist


1. Assessment of all companies involved

1. Identification and definition of end goals

1. Effective communication

1. Use of company teams

1. Building trust and unified culture

1. Clarification of strategic priorities

1. Tracking of key measures

1. Maintaining a management system for organizational goals


The above-tabled steps are very important when it comes to unifying the cultures of the two merging companies. The first step, which involves assessing the entities, will work to help the stakeholders understand the operations and cultures of the companies. The step will aid in the identification of any gaps that may be prevalent. The second step, which is the identification of the company goals, will help in getting a better overview of the procedures that support the company cultures. Effective communication is a very important aspect of management (Schein, 1990). Therefore, this step will aid in understanding the merger goals and objectives. The other step is the use of teams. This will help the merger to effectively integrate the plans of the teams in the company.

Trust is very important in a team; thus, the management should seek to develop a sense of trust between the team members involved in the merger. Additionally, the clarification of the strategic priorities will help in unifying the two cultures and make the team members focus more on the new merger. The other step in the checklist would be the tracking of key measures that are useful in supporting performance. This will help in ensuring that the management gets a clear understanding of the merger metrics. The final step in the checklist is the maintenance of management systems, which is essential in the tracking of the organizational goals. The entire checklist will aid human resource management in integrating the two cultures into one strong and effective culture.
