It 's stood as a constant deterrent against international aggression. They fought the good fight when necessary. Acted as a willing source of assistance to those in crisis or need around the globe.

Presumably, a lack of a unified culture and the overemphasis on collaboration has become a culture within itself for Universal. Culture should at least
In today’s dynamic business environment leadership must understand the value and importance of their organizations’ culture. While it may never be formally defined, leadership must have a vision of their intended culture and a plan for creating and maintaining it. This vision will serve as the potter’s clay that determines everything from the dress code to the organizational structure.
