Measuring organizational values with Schwartz’s PVQ - by the example of an university context.

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


The PVQ measures individual value orientations. The first and longer version contains 40 items which represent portraits of 40 different people. The widely used 21-item PVQ is simply a shorter version. There are female and male versions of the questionnaire. For example, the first item in the female version of the questionnaire contains the following two statements: “Thinking up new ideas and being creative is important to her. She likes to do things in her own original way”. These two statements describe a person who values Self-direction. The first statement describes the importance of a valued goal to the person. The second statement describes the person’s feelings about the goal. The presentation proposes an attempt to apply the PVQ to measure organizational value orientations.
