Amal Hayati Ishak, Muhamad Rahimi Osman, and Ghafarullahhuddin Din
Abstract—The linkage between organizational culture and organizational effectiveness has been elaborated by some empirical studies. Yet, organizational culture which includes shared values, philosophy, rules and habits are found to be varied across different continents, race, belief and others. However, little reference has been made to relate organizational culture with religion, specifically, the religion of Islam. So far, instruments developed and employed are also found lacking with religion influence which is somehow crucial in certain countries. This article conceptualizes organizational effectiveness in light of Islamic value system. Prior to that, the article elaborates the concept of organizational culture and organizational effectiveness, before elaborating on the linkage between the two. Consequently, the uniqueness of Islamic value system is explained as it may act as a motivation towards values adherence in organizational context. Finally, some suggestions for future research are also included in this article.

Index Terms—Organizational culture, organizational effectiveness, Islamic value system.
