Keywords:Ethical organizational culture, statistical analysis, Lithuania, measurement instrument
AbstractEthical organizational culture as a social phenomenon has drawn scholars and organizations’ attention after the global economic crisis in 2008 which, again, proved the importance of the ethical component of organizational culture as a phenomenon potentially accounting for organizational failures. A practical need for management of ethical virtues of organizational culture calls for robust measurement instruments which could help to diagnose potential ethical risks and improve ethical dimensions of organizational culture. The paper presents the results of confirmatory validation analysis of a measurement instrument for ethical organizational culture or the corporate ethical virtues model. The model encompasses 8 virtues, i.e. clarity, congruency of supervisors, congruency of management, transparency, feasibility, discussability, supportability, and sanctionability, measured by a 58-item scale initially.
