Abstract:In the current knowledge economy, the competency to collect information and to apply knowledge for improvement and innovation plays an important role in business activities. Many organizations make great efforts in improving knowledge productivity and value creation through creating a strong organizational culture. Organizational culture, which refers to shared values, norms and practices, can influence people’s behaviors of learning, sharing, and generating knowledge in their daily work and can inspire people’s abilities for innovation, which may lead to high value and corporate reputation. Employees working in an open, people-oriented and challenge-seeking environment can cultivate feelings of ownership and accomplishment. However, people in some Chinese enterprises are not aware enough of the importance of a supportive organizational culture and do not know clearly how to increase their knowledge productivity and value creation. Therefore, by means of three surveys accompanied by interviews in one of the Chinese State-Owned Enterprises, Shaanxi Coal and Chemical Industry Group (SCCIG), this study investigates the characteristics of and relationships between organizational culture, knowledge productivity and value creation, and develops a set of guidelines for building a strong organizational culture in order to achieve high value creation and knowledge productivity through learning and development.
