The Organizational Culture Inventory
Organizational culture can be described as the ways of thinking, believing, and behaving that members of an organization have in common and whose sum total guides the way they approach their work and relate to each other. It is a pattern of shared values and beliefs that account for the norms and expectations within the organization. Culture, the combined behavior of organizational members, determines how the organization operates and ultimately drives its overall performance and success. Culture is critical to an organization’s ability to execute and achieve desired results. Understanding and managing it should be a priority for effective leaders.
The Organizational Culture Assessment is recognized as one of the most widely used and thoroughly researched organizational surveys in the world. It provides a picture of an organization’s operating culture in terms of the behaviors that members believe are expected or implicitly required. By guiding the way in which members approach their work and interact with one another, culture determines the organization’s capacity to solve problems, adapt to change, and perform effectively.
The Organizational Culture Assessment spells out:
- Organizational NORMS (“How we do things around here”)
- EXPECTATIONS (What gets rewarded and what’s expected of people)
- MANAGEMENT & LEADERSHIP PRACTICES
- HUMAN RESOURCES SYSTEMS
- ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE
- LEVERS TO EFFECT CHANGE
A clear picture is developed of the existing culture; it’s impact upon motivation and productivity of employees are outlined, and implications for change and/or retention of some current practices are clearly set forth. This “portrait” may be taken of an entire organization or of its subparts. Its implications and recommendations may be used to plan culture change programs, job redesign, team building programs, and the degree and direction of change over time may be measured.
Consisting of a 120-item questionnaire, the Organizational Culture Inventory may be administered in about 20 minutes on line or by paper and pencil. Results are presented in clear, readily understood language and pictorially via numerous graphs and charts
Whatever your strategy and objectives, the Organizational Culture Inventory can identify the working environment that will best meet your needs and specify the path you need to take to get there. You will be supported every step of the way by the knowledge and expertise of LEADERSHIP ASSESSMENTS.
