"The much-quoted intangible dimension"

We are always hearing people involved in projects moan about culture, and wish the one they have to deal with were different. What is a 'culture', and what is it comprised of? How is a culture formed? How do we observe a culture, and how can we change it? What needs are hidden by the way people behave?
