    My points were: no, not similar:
    - profitable companies are likely to want to differentiate their cultures to gain a competitive advantage. This will help to maintain profits in the long run
    - culture is like the DNA of a business, hard to copy
    Yes, similar:
    - firms base their cultures on existing models that have been proven to work to reduce risk
    My depends on factors were similar to yours

    I struggled to find companies in which its possible, lol there i turned around the question and write about B.A. How they can't control the economy therefore people potentially become price conscious. They can't necessarily plan cause if they do they will have to loose the USP of being different (porter) and so on..
