The main goal of our research is to explore the role of culture for improving the dynamics of an enterprise. Our basic proposition is that the culture of an enterprise importantly impact enterprise’s propensity toward dynamics. The presented research cognitions show that enterprises with the prevailing adhocracy culture seems to be the most dynamic ones, followed by the enterprises with the prevailing market and clan culture. According to the results of this study enterprises with the prevailing hierarchical culture have the least potential for the development of dynamic capabilities.
