The aim of this paper is to point to the very nature of the relationship between the organizational structure and organizational culture as very important mechanisms by means of which enterprises set their employees' behavior on the target course, or direct their efforts at accomplishing organizational goals, respectively. Besides the examination of the phenomenon of the organizational structure and organizational culture at the general level, the paper also includes the analysis of empirical study results entailing Bosnian enterprises. The research was made for two reasons. The first one was to identify the formalization and centralization level. The second one was to identify dominant organizational types of the structure and the culture (using the Charles Handy’s culture typology). The research analysis was made with respect to the interaction between organizational structure and organizational culture on one hand, and the point of view of the national culture and transitional processes characteristic of the area on the other hand.
