Unwritten Rules of the Game ® (UROG) – Un abordaje de la cultura organizacional y el desempeño en materia de seguridad
Every organization has "written rules": vision, mission, values, strategies, goals, roles and responsibilities in its structure, process descriptions, procedures, systems of incentives, rewards and penalties. Often they leave unresolved areas and dilemmas of priority. Other actions of the Management and the context send signals that are perceived as contradictory.The organization also works, following "unwritten rules": behavior guidelines that influence the way individuals see the organization and act on it. Recorded in culture, they are more powerful than the written rules, cover their gaps or directly replace them."Unwritten rules" have positive and negative effects on the behavior of people. Culture acts as a lock.The purpose of the analysis of the unwritten rules of the game is to reveal the logic behind individual behaviors that generate unwanted effects in an organization. Raise awareness about the "unwritten rules" is the first step toward change
