Organisational Culture Inventory
Using the Organisational Culture Inventory™ (OCI), we can measure and describe the culture of an organisation in a quantitative, easy to understand way. The OCI describes the operating culture in terms of what it takes to fit in and meet expectation – the behavioural norms.
The Organisational Culture Inventory provides insights into the behaviours which are driving and shaping the current culture.
The OCI can be used to identify the ideal culture – the culture which will best enable organisational objectives to be achieved.
levers for change
The Organisational Effectiveness Inventory™ (OEI) enables levers for change to be identified so that cultural targets may be realised.
using the OCI during a culture audit
When used during a culture audit, the OCI provides a wealth of information. Some of the styles measured by the Organisational Culture Inventory are positive and support constructive behaviours while others are dysfunctional and can lead to unnecessary conflict, dissatisfaction and stress. The OCI uses the Circumplex model to describe 12 different cultural norms which are categorised into 3 general types of culture:
- passive defensive
- aggressive defensive
The cultures measured by the OCI have been shown to have a direct bearing on the activities of individuals and the functioning of the organisation. They are related to important outcomes such as job-satisfaction, motivation, teamwork and the quality of products/services.
The Organisational Culture Inventory is the world’s most widely used and thoroughly researched tool for measuring organisational culture.
