If you want to measure your culture you issue the questionair:
i.e. Handy/Harrison questionair (in German)

and after receiving the answers and calculation e.g. the average over all received data, you could get such a diagram:

and start with the interpretation.

Typical questions:
  • Preferred culture is totally different to the assumed culture. Why? 
  • What are the significant differences?
  • Why is e.g. the task oriented culture preferred ?
For the Innovation Climate Questionair see ICQ page.
