ABSTRACT
High performance companies, according to the previous literature on organizational culture, are assumed to pocess the two cultural characteristics namely internal integration and external orientation. In our study, we employed the concepts of "employee empowerment" and "core values" as the variables representing internal integration, and "creating change" and "shared vision" representing external orientation, and then we analyzed their impact on firm performance. Data collected from 124 manufacturing firms in the Gebze region have been analysed to test the hypotheses. As a result of this study, the factors found to be increasing the firm performance were the two variables of external orientation.
