Organizational Culture Assessed at Public Administration: from Procedures to Professionalism

OCAI Online

This paper presents the outcome of research in Public Administration: what organizational culture type prevails and is change desired and needed? We used the validated Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument developed by professors Cameron and Quinn and based on the Competing Values Framework. The culture profile shows that Hierarchy Culture is dominant, but that change is very much necessary and desired. The most important switch to operate professionally and improve performance is to gain on Adhocracy Culture. The preferred change is big (more than 10 points) indicating that currently workers are not satisfied or, put in another way, there's much readiness to change.
