Symbols like styles of dress change over time and are not core components of a culture. At it's core, cultures are a set of shared values, a code of conduct. These values and codes of conduct change very slowly and are different between cities, states, countries, regions, religions, political parties, and yes, even companies. It's why people feel like they fit well some places but not others. Most leaders don't understand what culture is, what its components are, or how to identify what is unique about their company. They find it easier to fall back on meaningless permission-to-play values like integrity instead of digging deep to learn what parts of its behavior are critical to its success. And many people confuse perks -- things that can be bought -- with culture. So, as much as I sometimes respect Steve Jobs, culture a tool that has its place.
