Why is Climate Important?
Climate plays a key role in determining the outlook or likelihood of innovation, creativity, or change taking place in a particular situation. Climate is vital to the success of an organization. Dr. Göran Ekvall, a renowned climate researcher, once said,
"Climate affects organizational and psychological processes such as communication, problem solving, decision making, conflict handling, learning and motivation, and thus exerts influence on the efficiency and productivity of the organization, on its ability to innovate, and on the job satisfaction and the well-being that its members can enjoy."
