Using data collected from a sample of 97 manufacturing plants, we examine how organizational culture is related to outcomes associated with advanced manufacturing technology (AMT) implementation. Multiple item scales are developed and adapted from a wide range of sources in the literature to measure managers' perceptions of organizational culture, AMT benefits, and implementation outcomes such as operational benefits, organizational benefits, satisfaction, and competitive success. Regression analysis is used to analyze the relationships between these variables. The results suggest that cultural characteristics, as defined by the competing values model, are significantly related to AMT implementation outcomes. We conclude by discussing the managerial implications of these results.
