Organizational Values Profiler

What is the Organizational Values Profiler?
The Organizational Values Profiler (OVP) is a web-based, multi-functional instrument that enables respondents to review and examine the degree to which opposite demands are reconciled. The OVP quantifies organizational performance as the result to which 6 conflicting areas are reconciled. It could also identify the starting position (CURRENT) and preference (IDEAL) of the organizational cultural orientations, as perceived by respondents.

What is the purpose?
The OVP is a tool that measures your organisational performance (innovation, risk management etc) by assessing the degree to which you have reconciled 6 basic organisational dilemmas like people vs task orientation, short term vs long term, push vs pull etc. This allows leaders and/or teams to identify the perceptions of issues such as: Corporate Effectiveness (towards mission/goals), Efficiency, Loyalty, Learning, Leadership and Values, as well as possible other areas as per the request of the individual client.

When it should be used?
The OVP can be used within a group or organization internally, or with two groups involved in an integration process, allowing the leaders and/or teams to address key identified tensions and prioritize distribution of time and resources. Preferred areas of application are mergers/acquisitions, strategic change, creating a culture of innovation and risk management. The OVP can also be used over time to show the development of the organization’s culture towards the desired state.

What makes the Organizational Values Profiler unique?
Unlike other corporate culture diagnostic tools, the OVP goes beyond simple diagnosis and serves the basis for the reconciliation of the key tensions. The main benefits are:
  • it maximizes participation of managers and leaders by connecting their view points and problems to the wider organization
  • it provides a rigorous assessment of key issues rather than assumed needs
  • it offers a road map for future action
  • it secures engagement with organization/conference/workshop participants
