At times very dry and academic, and then suddenly inspiring and something I / we can act on almost immediately. It's probably more a book to work with than an inspirational reading experience. Also, I'm afraid I'm starting to plan an off-site to diagnose our organizational culture with the team and formulate areas of improvement... #halp ...more

A bit to systemic, where one would think culture isn't mechanical. The idea of measuring culture is surely appealing, the approach is sound, but at some point evokes too many mechanical and manufacturing metaphors.

Read this for a course I’m taking. Very much a textbook style, and also very practical with the real tools to help effect culture change in an organization. Now I need to write a paper about it and the relevance of it to changes within my own organization.

The book was good. I thought it to be very effective at getting the point across; however, it was quite dull and rather repetitive in their explanations. Suppose that is an argument for why it was effective?

Very well applicable framework to grasp the complexity of culture in organizations. We used the frame in several assignments for the design of workspaces to great effect.

Loved the assessment (OCAI) and the different dominant cultures discussed. Had it not been required reading, I'd have probably given it a higher score. ...more

The competing values framework is a simple to use and effective tool for snapshooting an organizational culture. I used the format to conduct an analysis for our board. Highly useful for planning.
