Replying to LO13698 --

In response to messages from David E. Birren ( LO13673) and Richard Seel

Several years ago, I used the Organizational Culture Inventory from Human
Synergistics and found it quite useful. It uses a 1-5 scale (1= Not at
all, 5 = To a very great extent) to evaluate 120 statements about a wide
range of topics regarding the organization. Most of it is based on what
is actually rewarded and expected, not on what folks might like to say in
public or would like to believe to be the case. Human Synergistics is
located in Michigan. No doubt other readers have used it too and may have
comments. It is at least an operational product that seems to have
survived commercially for some time. I have not had occasion to use it
for several years now but presume it is still around. Hope this is of
help. I still have an address and phone number if you wish.

Best wishes,
