From the Paper:

"To find the most qualified people to work on a project, the project manager or project leader has to know that type of people he or she is dealing with. They would not want to have a person working on a project where he or she is more of a loner, or prefers to work alone, but instead he would rather have a person who is team oriented. Ten dimensions help in identifying an organization's culture. They include member identity, team emphasis, inter-unit relations, control, social distance, reward criteria, conflict tolerance, level of effort, sharing of information, and external orientation."
