The study of organisational culture change is an important field of inquiry within the study of organisational behaviour and organisational culture. This study examined the effects of organisational culture change initiatives on employees, and how it impacted on their experiences as professionals in an academic healthcare environment. A qualitative case study methodology grounded in the phenomenological paradigm was operationalised. Twelve, open-ended, in depth interviews were conducted with health professionals of a university medical faculty. Interviews were recorded, transcribed and analysed. Open-coding word based techniques were used to identify themes from the qualitative text. Qualitative analytical methods were employed to ensure internal consistency and validity. The thematic results are reported, discussed and integrated with previous literature.
