BARALE, Rômulo Ferreira  and  SANTOS, Benedito Rodrigues dos. Organizational culture: a systematic literature review. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.2, pp. 129-136. ISSN 1984-6657.

The production of knowledge on organizational culture has been characterized by a multiplicity of conceptual, theoretical, and methodological perspectives, which raises the need to analyze the major themes related to this phenomenon in organizations. Thus, a systematic review of the literature on organizational culture was carried out. The survey took place in June 2015, with the selection of 53 articles published between 2002 and 2015 indexed in the SciELO and PePSIC bases. The analysis of the data allowed us to identify 6 analytical categories related to the phenomenon: changes in the management model, power relations, management of people, studies of specific organizational cultures, test or theoretical approach proposition, and measurement instruments. The results show a dispersion of subjects and themes without pointing towards a converging research agenda. A consensus among researchers is the need for assessing cultural aspects of organizations prior to proposing any research project or intervention.

Keywords : organizational culture; systematic review; organizational psychology.
