Journals should be 400 words (or more if needed). Write your answers in paragraph form. In other words, include an introduction (e.g.: describe the organization), at least four (4) supporting paragraphs (one paragraph for each question), and a conclusion. In your conclusion, reflect upon whether you think there is a fit between the organization’s control systems and its culture, and how this can be improved.
