The aim of this research paper is to explore the organisational culture in the context of research-based organisation. A case study is presented and analysed via the Organisational Culture Profile developed by Cameron and Quinn. Data collection was undertaken using the survey instrument they developed (Cameron and Quinn, 1999). However, in-depth interviews were also conducted in order to explore and have a greater understanding of views of the employees. Manual line-by-line microanalysis of the interviews was carried out as part of the data analysis. Discussion indicates the importance of individual interpretations of organizational culture and about employees’ varied views for the desired culture based on interpretations of the symbolic meanings within organizational culture. Based on the study findings, there is an imperative that the human resource department and the organisational leaders continue to use research findings to understand the prevailing culture that exists in the organisation as compared to the desired culture. Employee performance can be improved by applying this knowledge.
