How is it performed

 


The first step in performing a team or corporate cultural assessment is to customise the input forms to include the required demographics (department, location, etc.) which may be required for analysis.

The second step is to choose the values to be included for selection; this will include any sector specific items such as those for education or finance. Also included will be items specific to the organisation by virtue of already being a part of their culture e.g. from the vision statement.

Next, a briefing session is held if a small team is involved, or multiple briefings if a larger group involved. An alternative would be a written briefing document explaining what was taking place, why, and how to fill in the assessments. The assessments are usually filled in on the internet but a paper alternative is available if required.

Finally, the participants fill in the assessments, a process which takes between 10 and 20 minutes with the whole exercise taking from 3 to 5 weeks elapsed to inception to receiving the results. A sample list of values is shown below:
