|Abstract: ||Identity crisis has become a major source of inefficiency and ineffectiveness of individuals and
organizations. One of the strategic ways for solving this crisis is through identifying the culture
(personality) of organizations. The study identified organizational culture typologies of construction
firms in Ghana, which is in response to the need for culture studies in construction and the
unavailability of such studies in the Ghanaian Construction Industry. The study was quantitative;
data were collected from Indigenous contractors in Ghana using a questionnaire survey. Analysis
was done using Mean Score Ranking, Relative Importance Index and Exploratory Factor Analysis.
Workplace Culture, Business Culture, System Culture and Group Culture were the identified
typologies for the study. The cultures identified reveal the strategic areas of construction
organizations which need management planning and commitment, to help in reshaping them to
be competitive in the business environment.|
