Values Assessment Tool

The Cultural Transformation Tools consist of a series of assessment instruments that map the values of individuals and groups to the Barrett Seven Levels of Consciousness Model. The following assessment instruments are available:

Individual Values Assessment (IVA)
The Individual Assessment instrument is frequently used by coaches to support individuals in their personal transformation. The assessment instrument measures the degree of alignment between an individual’s Personal Values and their perception of the Current Culture and Desired Culture of the organization where they work. The results are plotted against the framework of the Seven Levels of Personal and Organizational Consciousness.

Cultural Values Assessment (CVA)
The Cultural Values Assessment is used to measure the consciousness and map the values of the overall organization as well as different staff levels, business units, locations, regions or determine demographic differences. The Cultural Values Assessment can be used in small, medium and large organizations. The results are plotted against the framework of the Seven Levels of Personal and Organizational Consciousness.

Leadership Values Assessment (LVA)
The Leadership Values Assessment is a 360-degree feedback instrument that compares a manager's perception of his or her operating values against the perception of his or her superior, peers and subordinates. The results are plotted using the framework of the Seven Levels of Leadership Consciousness. This assessment is typically followed up by a two-hour feedback session and the development of a personal action plan.

Merger Compatibility Assessment
The Cultural Values Assessment can be used to prepare a Cultural Due Diligence report. Culture Assessments are carried out for each company involved in a merger or acquisition using a common template of values. The Personal, Current Culture and Desired Culture values of the two organizations are compared to determine the similarities and differences between the two cultures. A compatibility assessment report is produced to highlight the key issues that should be addressed in implementing the cultural aspect of the merger.

Team Values Assessment (TVA)
The Team Values Assessment is used to map the values and measure the consciousness of small groups or teams. The assessment instrument measures the degree of alignment between team members’ perception of the Current and Desired Culture values, and between the team members’ Personal and Current Culture values. It also measures the level of cultural entropy. The alignment of the Current Culture with the team’s espoused values can also be measured. The results are plotted against the framework of the Seven Levels of Personal and Organizational Consciousness. Individual plots for each team member can be provided.
