Role Culture Often found in large, hierarchical and bureaucratic organizations. Effective when you work within an industry that experiences slow change Useful where it's important for team members to follow particular rules. 3. Task Culture Judges performance by results and the number of problems that they solve. Expertise and talent are valued and rewarded. Useful in industries where solving problems is the primary objective 4. Existentialist Culture Individuals' talent and skills are the organization's greatest assets. Organizations that depend entirely on the talent or skill of expert professionals. Personal freedom is the foundation of an existentialist culture Each culture has its own advantages and disadvantages.
