Uses studies of an unnamed Californian tech company to offer three cultural perspectives.
One is the intergregationist view, common in many studies of business culture as one that sees an organisation's culture driven by its CEO and senior management.
The second is the differentiational view (Martin's favoured perspective), where an organisation is seen as primarily having many interacting sub-cultures.
The third, the fragmentation perspective is almost an anti-cultural view that down plays the whole concept of culture.
