Why culture matters?
Culture is documented to have a significant impact on performance. It shows up as a critical factor for team collaboration, learning and innovation, which heavily impact strategy implementation, organizational change and effective restructuring.
A business culture is not easy to see, and is by default challenging to measure, monitor and manage. By visualizing the values in a team, a better shared understanding of the Actual culture is likely. This enables the team a data driven process for cultural development and optimalisation towards an Aspired team culture to match the business strategy.
What is Culture Intelligence?

So, how do you measure the culture?
The Culture Intelligence digital service is based on a diversity of the most relevant theories from values research, and 20 years of experience from this field. The model consists of 100 values, with each value being clearly defined. You can read more about the research behind and methodology here.
Measuring culture is performed using a "culture sensor" - a purpose-built survey.
The survey consists of 8 demographic questions and 100 values questions each containing 4 value statements. When going through the survey, you are asked to select the one statement out of four that is most important to you. Example:
It is most important to me to:
take care of my family
build a team
The survey takes you approximately 25 minutes to complete.
