Free 5-Minute Corporate Culture Survey

The Competing Values Framework (CVF)

Complete this brief survey, then hit the “submit” button at the end, and you’ll receive a free detailed, eye-opening report in 24 hours that diagnoses your existing and preferred cultures.

  • First: Complete the “NOW” section

    Read through each of the four basic descriptions in A, B, C and D.

    Complete the “NOW” section by dividing 100 points among the four choices (A, B, C and D) to indicate your opinion of your organization’s current state. The total of A+B+C+D must equal 100. Every organization has some of each of the four choices. It’s the amount of each that varies.

    Important – the total must equal 100. Few organizations, if any, are 100% in any one category (A,  B, C, or D). Give the highest number of points to the description that is most similar to the current environment (now).

  • A. We focus on our people. This organization emphasizes human development. Leaders are like mentors, and we invest in developing talent, building relationships and trust, and encouraging teamwork, open communications, collaboration, and participation.

  • Please enter a value between 0 and 100.

  • B. We focus on new opportunities. This organization emphasizes staying ahead and seeking new challenges. This is a dynamic, entrepreneurial, and creative place to work. Leaders are real innovators and visionaries. We are always on the cutting edge, trying new things, staying ahead of market trends, and finding new sources or revenue and resources.

  • Please enter a value between 0 and 100.

  • C. We focus on results. This is a do-it-now, customer-focused place to work that emphasizes making the numbers. Leaders are hard driving motivators, and tough and demanding producers. We focus on achieving goals, acting with a sense of urgency, and winning! We get it done.

  • Please enter a value between 0 and 100.

  • D. We focus on efficiency. This is a formal, structured, rule-bound place to work. Leaders pride themselves on being good managers and efficiency-minded who can maintain a smooth-running operation. Consistency, stability, following procedures, and maintaining standards matter greatly

  • Please enter a value between 0 and 100.

  • Next: Complete the “PREFERRED” section

    Just like you did in the “NOW” section, divide 100 points among the four choices (A, B, C and D) to indicate your opinion of your organization’s preferred future corporate culture. That is, in your opinion, for your organization to consistently perform at its best and achieve its true potential, would A, B, C, and D be less than, more than, or the same as you indicated in the “NOW” section? Again, the total of A+B+C+D must equal 100.

    For your “Preferred” responses, consider this: If your organization is to perform consistently at its best, achieve all it is capable of achieving, and become an outstanding example of sustainable growth and high performance – what must the culture be like?
