Values-related decision-making biases in organizations

We are investigating the effect our values have on our decision-making capabilities: how we assess risk, frame propositions and use heuristics.

As a thank you to participating organizations, i.e. those that encourage staff to invest 10 minutes in an online survey, in addition to providing values profiles to individual participants, we will provide cultural maps of any or every part of the organization and feedback to help make sense of this.
Without breaching anyone's confidentiality we can provide an overview of the values of individuals in any department, section or level in an organization.

The alignment between the needs and values of individuals and organizational needs is a key determinant of organizational performance.  Simple maps like the one on the left help us to see at a glance how aligned these needs and values are, as well as flagging up potential management and leadership challenges and the best means by which to address these. 
If individual staff members are happy to share their values profiles, this opens up a whole other world of opportunties: helping to address and overcome a wide range of performance related issues: communication breakdowns, motivational differences, infighting, lack of structure, engagement, incompatible leadership styles, difficulties dealing with change, etc....
