The key differences between internal-oriented organization cultures and external-oriented organization cultures are as follows:

In an internal-oriented culture, dominating and autocratic dispositions are the order of the day while an external-oriented culture emphasizes flexibility, espousing compromises whenever the need is urgent.

For an internal-oriented culture, conflicting personas and resistant demeanors are considered to be proceed from deep conviction. As for an external-oriented culture, the norms of interaction are harmony, constructive responsiveness and of course sensitivity.

The emphasis on self, individual functioning, one's own group and one's own organization is encouraged in a internal-oriented organization culture. In contrast to that, an external-oriented culture reflects on the principle of team-work and the preference for mutual achievements over individual accomplishments.

Last but not least, an internal-oriented culture perceives change in the organization as a prospective problem while an external-oriented culture comprehends changes as paradigm shifts, which are mostly classified as necessary adaptations.
