The culture concept has been central to anthropology and has become increasingly prominent in sociology in recent years. It has also become a key concept in the subfield of organisational studies, where the idea of 'organisational cultures' has become very influential. In short, culture is evidence of power and its organisation. The conception of culture author have proffered implies that there are genuine cultural differences, or at least gradations of difference, between organisations and between nations. For some, the integration of the subsidiary Capital Bank was seen as a significant step to weakening the old Bank of Scotland (BoS) culture, prior to the formation of HBOS. Generally, the 1990s were understood as a period when BoS was aware of the increasing competitive pressures of the banking industry and trying to cautiously innovate and modernize.
