Culture is a group phenomenon and as such cannot be measured on an individual level, yet people like to score themselves, implying that one should not take the individual scores too literally. However, the factual information presented is based on the research done by Hofstede and others.
HOW IS THE CULTURE COMPASS STRUCTURED?
Respondents are asked to give their preferences regarding 42 pairs of questions on a five-point scale. Based on the role respondents have, such as superior, subordinate or teacher, relevant feedback is given.
The feedback is given in the form of the degree to which respondents may experience problems or pitfalls when dealing with people from another culture of their choice.
CAN YOU USE THE CULTURE COMPASS TO MEASURE ORGANISATIONAL CULTURE?
No. The Culture Compass is a tool to assess individual preferences at the level of national cultures. Organisational culture covers differences in practices among different organisations. National culture covers specifically differences in values among people born and raised in different societies.
You will get tailored feedback based on your professional capacity and your personal scores on Hofstede’s 6D model after answering a questionnaire of 42 questions.
