Abstract

A study was performed on the managerial staff and supervisors of a large manufacturing plant (n = 129) to measure individuals’ commitment to the organization’s values. A Behavioral Observation Scale (BOS) measurement instrument was developed by the members of the organization and was administered using a 360 degree valuation process. Results indicated good scale reliability and consistency. A factor analysis of the data yielded 4 distinct factors, which corresponded reasonably well to the underlying organizational values. Implications for future research and for the evaluation of organizational values for practicing managers are discussed.
