Every organization has got certain forms of behaviours, rules, norms, beliefs and attitudes
they apply in their business activities and which become common and recognizable patterns of behaviour
of all members in one organization and make its factor of consistency. According to the Denison
Model, which the research presented in this paper leans on, mission and the consistency factor represent
the stability factor of the organizational culture, a phenomenon of the essential importance for
successful business. The aim of this paper is to present the presence of consistency in organizations in
the Republic of Serbia through an empirical research and to analyse consistency differences in domestic
and foreign companies. Organizational culture is developed on the foundations of national culture,
hence noticing these differences is important in order to use the results to enhance organizational
culture of domestic companies which, in times of transition, are often faced with survival challenges.



Consistency, Stability, Organization, Organizational culture, Denison Model, Serbia.
