GOWRIPRASAD

I have outlined your subject at four levels.

1.basic ''values''.

2.organization values.

3.corporate values

4. HR VALUES

=================================

WHAT ARE VALUES

VALUES --CAN THEY BE MEASURED

VALUES are beliefs in what is best or good for the organization

and what should or ought to happen. The value set is engineered

from the top and driven through the organization / shared by all.

The stronger the values, the more they will influence behavior

Implicit values are that are deeply embedded in the culture of the

organization and often reinforced by management behavior can be

highly influential.

Explicit values that are idealistic and not reinforced by management

behavior may have little or no effect.

IT IS "VALUES IN USE" values that drive desirable behavior, that

are relevant / important.

Some of the areas in which "VALUES IN USE" can be expressed,

implicitly or explicitly are

-PERFORMANCE

-COMPETENCE

-COMPETITIVENESS

-INNOVATION

-QUALITY

-CUSTOMER SERVICE

-TEAMWORK

-PEOPLE SATISFACTION

These can be evaluated / measured.

"VALUES IN VALUE" are translated into the REAL ORGANIZATION

through behavioral norms , feelings, language etc.

SO VALUES THEMSELVES CANNOT BE MEASURED BUT ONLY

THROUGH OUTCOMES/ RESULTS AS SHOWN ABOVE.

====================================

WHAT ARE

ORGANIZATIONAL VALUES

[WHEN YOU DO THIS SEGMENT--KEEP YOUR ORGANIZATION'S VALUES

TO SHOW YOUR PARTICIPANTS WHAT THEY ARE]

CORE ISSUES

-managing the task.

SUBISSUES ARISING FROM CORE ISSUES

1.EFFECTIVENESS >>>>VALUE=doing the right thing.

2.EFFICIENCY>>>>>>>>>VALUE=doing things right.

3.ECONOMY>>>>>>>>>>>VALUE=no free lunches

3.DEFENSE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>VALUE=know thine enemy.

================================================== =

CORE ISSUES

-managing relationships

SUBISSUES ARISING FROM CORE ISSUES

1.LAW AND ORDER>>>>>>>>VALUE=justice must prevail.

2.TEAMWORK>>>>>>>>>>>>>VALUE=pull together.

3.FAIRNESS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>VALUE=who dares wins.

==================================================

CORE ISSUES

-managing management

SUBISSUES ARISING FROM CORE ISSUES

1.POWER>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>VALUE=managers must manage.

2.ELITISM>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>VALUE=cream belongs at the top.

3.REWARD>>>>>>>>>>>>>>VALUE=performance is king.

================================================== ==

OUR VALUES , WHETHER WE ARE AWARE OF IT OR NOT,

DETERMINE OUR DAILY BEHAVIOR. THIS IS ESPECIALLY

TRUE FOR THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER WHO MUST

HAVE BOTH CLEAR AND PRODUCTIVE VALUES. A

MANAGEMENT IS WEAK AND UNFOCUSED WITHOUT

A COHERENT VALUE SYSTEM. POWER MUST BE

USED WITH WISDOM AND SUBTLETY---DOMINATION

WILL ALWAYS BE RESISTED.

===============================================

Corporate value systems

Corporate value systems that consists of three value TYPES.

These are considered complementary and juxtaposed on the same level if illustrated graphically on for instance an organization’s web page.

-The first value TYPE is Core Values, which prescribe the attitude and character of an organization, and are often found in sections on Code of conduct on its web page. The philosophical antecedents of these values are Virtue ethics.

The second TYPE is Protected Values are protected through rules, standards and certifications. They are often concerned with areas such as health, environment and safety.

-The third TYPE - Created Values, is the values that stakeholders, including the shareholders expect in return for their contributions to the firm. These values are subject to trade-off by decision-makers or bargaining processes.

================================================== ========

CREATORS OF CORPORATE VALUES

CORPORATE VALUES is shaped by a handful of people who are guardians of the vision and the shapers of the corporate conscience. It is especially the role of the chief executive to define the character of the business and to establish the corporate VALUES SYSTEM / CULTURE .

A corporation can instill within its basic policy structure and patterns of behavior a corporate culture, a corporate value system that can prevail.

Reward and recognize staff for taking risks and demonstrating creativity in support of Organization's objectives, as well as for securing successful outcomes. Taking risks may result in some failures; staff should communicate regularly with supervisors throughout a change process so that possible adverse outcomes can be identified and either anticipated or avoided. Supervisors should recognize that creative change, even when mentored and supported, may not result in complete success.
