In recent years, the corporation has undergone dynamic change, growing on a global scale, not least as a result of various acquisitions, and thus taking on an ever greater position in global competition. A fundamental experience that the corporation has gained throughout this process of change is what a decisive role corporate culture plays. Issues such as “sustainability”, “forward-looking innovations” and “profitable growth” have consequently been pushed closer to the fore.
