Charles Ess (and other Humanists),

I recall that Edgar Schein's book _Organizational Culture and Leadership_
has a chapter that examines the shared assumptions of IT-type managers
versus CEOs in large organizations that might be helpful for your purposes.

Typical of a management book, its language is a bit "rah rah," but for this
sort of tome, I find the research is very solid and Schein's conclusions
quite on the mark.

I would also say that the book is a classic for those interested in
Organizational Culture in general.
