Organizational culture is interpreted as a component of social management; the basic integralcharacteristic of which is an ordered system of values, representations, beliefs and normative patterns ofbehavior that provides optimal internal integration and external adaptation of an organization or socialinstitution. It is proved that public and non-governmental organizations act as voluntary associations ofcitizens aimed at achieving socially significant goals, realizing their own and collective needs withoutprofit, indicating the existence of a certain or ganizational structure.Transparent society is associated with the notion of democratic transit, which can be defined as apolitical process taking place in the existing legal state of the state and accompanied by a break in theinstitutes of the emerging political regime, the establishment and strengthening of a broad network ofdemocratic institutions of civil society and the strengthening of democratic functions of state powerstructures. Institutions of civil society in a transitive society are more adaptable to social transformations,creating the foundation for the formation of a democratic syste m of social governance.The structural components of organizational culture of the public sector of society are singled out:1) societal components (identity, archetypes of the leader); 2) value-normative components (values,organizational values and norms); 3) organizational and managerial components of organizational culture(style of management in the organization, structure of communication, socio-psychological climate). On the basis of the results of the sociological survey structural and informative features of organizationalculture in the public sector of Ukrainian society in the condit ions of democratic transit were revealed:1) in the measurement of societal components - the domination of social identity against the backdropof the strengthening of societal identity, the dominance of the creative functional in the archetype ofthe leader; 2) in the value-normative dimension - a relatively integrated value system, an orientationto the human resource and quality, the moral-psychological and communicative basis of social norms;3) in the measurement of organizational and managerial relations - the democratic and situational style ofmanagement, the average level of openness of information flows, positive socio-psychological climate.It has been determined that the development of civil society is an indicator of the democratic natureof social governance in the state, although it has certain differences in the possibilities of identifying,participating in the adoption of management decisions and their control in various sectors of society: thestate (especially in the field of management), commercial and private. Thus, democratic organizationalculture reflects the value-normative system of organizational-managerial relations of a democratic type ofsocial governance.
