Secondary Articulation and Reinforcement Mechanisms.
In a young organization, design, structure, architecture, rituals, stories, and formal statements are cultural reinforces, not culture creatures. Once an organization has matured and stabilized, these same mechanisms come to be primary culture-creating mechanisms that will constrain future leaders. I have labeled these mechanisms that will constrain future leaders. I have labeled these mechanisms secondary because they work only if they are consistent with the primary mechanisms discussed above. When they are consistent, they begin to build organizational ideologies and thus to formalize much of what is informally learned at the outset. If they are inconsistent, they either will be ignored or will be a source of internal conflict.
