by Dr. Rassel Kassem

The relationship between organizational culture (OC) and corporate performance has frequently been studied, and this is reflected in relevant literature in the last few years. However, the relationship between OC and business excellence is rarely tackled. To this end, this research examined the relationship between four OC types and organizational excellence and the role of information communication technology (ICT) as a moderator. A quantitative study was conducted, and the data were collected using a survey questionnaire distributed to middle managers in one of the gold winners of a United Arab Emirates-based business excellence award. The results showed that there is a positive relationship between organizational culture components and business excellence in general. A mission culture has the most significant relationship; in contrast, the adaptability culture has no positive relationship. Also, the moderating role of ICT was proven. The results of this research can be utilized by managers to build the OC type that most boosts excellence within their organization.
