Culture: Post #9--Cultural ssessment (FINAL)
How to Start Cultural Assessment Schein favors a group interview process (over a sweeping cultural survey) that gets to the heart of culture faster by discussing artifacts, values, and shared assumptions. He outlines a number of steps: 1. Obtain Leadership Commitment: Select group for self-assessment; 2. Select an appropriate setting for group assessment; 3. Explain group purpose; 4. Define culture’s key factors: Artifacts, Values and Basic Assumptions; 5. Identify aids and hindrances; 6. Decide on next steps.
