The Global Values Monitor is an instrument to survey and measure
the "Values Mix" present in either an organisation, a region or a country.
The method of collection is very simple and can be either through self
completion of a simple questionnaire or by collection of the survey data
by researchers where the respondents are not able to complete the form
adequately. In organisations the information can be collected electronically.
Data will be updated using an existing computer program specially developed
for this purpose.
The data is shown as a continuous line with peaks and valleys indicating
the "mix" of Values Systems in a particular organisation, country or region.
An example of the type of profile obtained is shown in the illustration
below. The information collected can be used as a management tool by politicians,
managers and individuals in order to better understand the "values system
dynamics" of a particular organisation or country. The Global Values
Monitor will be used in a similar way to the World Competitiveness
Report but will indicate the types of Value Systems present and the required
approach for positive economic, social, political and other related improvements
to be made within the surveyed area / region.
Value Systems Mosaic
Lester C. Thurow - Former Dean: MIT Sloan School
of Management expresses the view that, "We are entering an era of organisational
change as profound and as pervasive as that caused by the Industrial Revolution.
Just as in that time, the survivors will be the companies that invent
and embrace the entirely new possibilities brought on by technological,
social and economic change."
