Keys to the Assignment:
Define “organizational culture.” Please be very specific (and be sure that you provide references for your description of culture).

How might Human Resource Management (HRM) have played a central role in setting the “moral compass” at Enron, helping to form and shape the organizational culture (perhaps avoiding the Enron debacle altogether)?
