Is there anything wrong with the term Company Culture?

In an article in HBR, Why Company Culture Is a Misleading Term John Traphagan thinks there is.

But Dan Pontefract in a response in Forbes There Is Nothing Wrong With The Term Company Culture thinks there isn't.

Scott Adams has a thought provoking thought on culture too - Success improves culture more than a good culture can cause success

I have a lot of sympathy with what John Traphagan says about organizational culture but I still find it a useful concept.

What do you think?
