Organizational Culture Model

Organizational Culture Model

Assignment Description

Each student will evaluate the culture of an organization of your choosing by using the Denison model provided below. This will include the completion of an opinion survey and some research on your organization. Internet students will be required to post their completed model as an attachment to the Discussion Board. That thread (and directions for posting an attachment) will appear later in the semester and must be completed by the due date. You should go ahead and review the Denison website listed below as well as the model and survey.

This website will explain how the survey measures specific aspects of an organization’s culture, how the model was designed, and how they define each category in the model. We will be completing the survey slightly differently than they suggest. However, it is important for you to know how they use it. Follow the directions I have given you below when you are ready to begin this assignment.

The survey
After reviewing the Denison website and watching the video from our October 7th class, complete the survey based on the organization you chose for this assignment. For each section: Answer ?Yes? if you think this applies to the company you are evaluating. Answer ?No? if it does not apply.

Model

The first slide is the Denison Model (slightly modified). To transfer your opinion from your survey, copy and paste the model into the Paint program on your computer. Use the spraycan to color in the number of segments you answered “Yes” to for each category (Creating Change, Core Values, Team Orientation, etc.). Each category has 5 segments to represent the 5 statements in each category on the survey. Notice the model and survey are color-coded…use the same color when you complete your model.

The second slide is an example of what your model should look like when you have completed the survey and transferred your opinion to the model.

The third slide shows you how to cut and paste the model if you need help.

Please when u do it tell me why did u put Yes or no for each question in short answers please 😀
