Using the language of exchange theory, this paper analyzes how organizational culture emerges out of the institutional arrangements developed to regulate the exchanges or transactions between members of a social group. From an analysis of the costs of social exchange, the etiology of these institutional arrangements is traced, their characteristics are defined, and three ideal-typical cultural forms are discussed.
