A variety of measures of organizational culture have been proposed and one widely used in Australia is that based on Quinn's competing values model. To date, however, there has been no published research examining its validity and reliability when used with Australian organizations. This paper presents the results of a study of 462 managers’ perceptions of their organizations and concludes that Quinn's measure is a useful one in an Australian context. It also suggests that Australian organizations may have cause to be concerned about the environments within which their employees operate.
