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