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.

If you are interested in reading more about Organisational Culture go to What you need to know about Organisational Culture.

Please note that some countries/regions do not have specific country scores or do not have scores for specific dimensions because the country/region was not included in a pertinent research project. In this case, information will not appear for the missing dimensions (see Languages / Countries for details).

We started using Culture Compass at ITESM Sinaloa for our students. Students love getting immediate personal feedback because it proves to them how understanding national culture is important, but also how their own personality, education and culture can show in comparison to their own culture and any other in which they might be interested in living.

Culture Compass has been transformative for me! One example, I wanted to delegate entirely to my colleagues (some of whom I have been working with for over 10-15 years) but I was not getting them to take ownership to the extent I wanted them to. It was later when I reflected on what I had learned that I realised there was a Culture component at play. I adjusted my way of working with them now and so far, all is going much better.
