Values in an organization
The values in an organization are its guiding principles. They also inspire its members, guide their behaviour, and set the organization apart from others. To identify the values, all the members reflect on the mission (the reason for the existence of the organization), the vision (the ideal state that the organization wants to achieve), and finally on the values. From this reflection between 3 and 6 values are agreed. They should be in line with the culture of the organization and describe what has to be done to aim high, and for the organization to be successful with its mission.
To put the values in practice, it is necessary to define the behaviours reflecting those values in the organization. To do this, the members must reflect on the behaviour of its members that they want to see, the behaviour that does not match the values, and the ideal behaviour from its members.
