The expression "organisation culture", perceived as behavioural norms and (frequently unspoken) rules related to knowledge sharing and decision-making, appears as a significant influence factor in a number of aspects of management research. The authors have been conducting parallel research studies in the fields of inter-organisational collaboration and innovation for some time, and have noted references to "a culture of collaboration" and the need for an "innovative culture" in these fields. Our objective is to assist individual firms in achieving beneficial outcomes from active collaboration and from embracing innovation, and as part ofthat process we have been addressing issues of organisation culture. Some people are comfortable with the term "culture" at the conceptual level, but others want some more specific form of characterisation that helps define areas for improvement and has clear linkages to enterprise imperatives. This paper presents an approach used in such a characterisation, and discusses its application to a culture ofinnovation.
