I was recently asked to discuss the statement “Attempting to introduce a positive organisational culture is a waste of time”. Effective answering of the question required definitions which framed positive culture as at least potentially amenable to change. The benefits of positive cultural change were explored. The merits of two possible positive psychology interventions as mediums for facilitating this change and possible areas for future research were discussed as were the implications of complex adaptive systems. The outcome of following the above process resulted in a position that whilst introducing a positive organisational culture is problematic, it is a worthwhile approach to enhancing employee perception of the organisation and also enhancing organisational performance.
