Robert E. Quinn and Kim S. Cameron identify four types of culture. Market culture A result-oriented organisation in which the greatest care focuses on completing the work. The people are competitive and goal-focused. Clan culture A very friendly working environment where people have a lot in common and which strongly resembles a large family. The leaders, or the heads of the organisations, are viewed as mentors and maybe even as father figures. The organisation attaches great value to teamwork, participation and consensus. Hierarchy culture A highly formalised, structured working environment. Competing Values Leadership : Creating Value in Organizations.

Creating value in a firm is an enormously complex endeavor. Yet, despite its complexity, value creation is the objective of every enterprise, every worker, and every leader. The Competing Values Framework can help leaders understand more deeply and act more effectively. In the first book to comprehensively present this framework, the authors discuss its core elements and focus attention on rethinking the notion of value. They emphasize specific tools and techniques leaders can use to institute sustainable change.The Competing Values Framework was developed in response to the need for a broadly applicable model that would foster successful leadership, improve organizational effectiveness, and promote value creation. It helps leaders think differently about value creation and shows them how to clarify purpose, integrate practices, and lead people. Named one of the 40 most important frameworks in the history of business, it has been studied and tested in organizations for more than 25 years. Currently used by hundreds of firms around the world, the Competing Values Framework serves as a map, an organizing mechanism, a sense-making device, a source of new ideas, and a learning system.This accessible resource will be of great use to organizational scholars interested in the concepts of value creation, organizational effectiveness, and competing values; to leaders and managers interested in enhancing and creating value in their organizations; and to change agents and consultants who use the Competing Values Framework as part of their intervention strategies or who are looking to help improve organizations.
Reviews:
  • Leceri
This is an excellent, practical introduction to a scholarly model or "meta-theory" of leadership effectiveness. I've always found the "competing values framework" an very useful device for making sense of disparate management and organizational concepts. This book is written in that vein.,
  • Nagor
Every leader needs to read this.

Subtitle: Creating Value in Organizations

As a doctoral candidate in business management, I have leadership books growing out of my ears. When I discovered Competing Values Leadership, I prepared myself for the worst, secretly hoping these authors would offer a unique perspective on leadership that not only offers value but also demonstrates how leadership affects the bottom line in business. Fortunately, I wasn't disappointed.

Competing Values Leadership is organized into two main parts, sub-divided into nine chapters. It includes a list of figures and tables used throughout the book to demonstrate key components of the Competing Values Leadership framework.

Part I overviews the competing values theory and explains the four-quadrant visual model underlying this theory. The authors propose that "hundreds of organizations have used the framework to diagnose and implement culture change, establish competitive strategy, motivate employees, facilitate organizational development and change, implement quality processes, (and) develop high potential leaders..." (p. 12).

Cases including Philips Electronics, Dana Corporation, Dell, General Dynamics, and SPX are provided to demonstrate value created by application of the framework which is divided into quadrants describing four value-creating leadership activities: Collaborate, Create, Compete and Control. The authors assert that balanced application of these competing values, preferences, and priorities which exist in all organizations will yield more value and better financial results.

Part II discusses additional applications of the model and how behaviors of the Competing Values Leadership model can result in value creation and higher financial performance.

Since the authors are researchers and academics, Competing Values Leadership is not a book easily examined cover-to-cover. It's filled with quantitative charts and research terms like "multiple regression" and "predictive analysis" unfamiliar to the typical business audience. Yet, once readers wade through the academic jargon, they will discover that the Competing Values Leadership model offers valuable insights into the inherent paradox of leadership and why leadership is actually a balancing act among extremes rather than a simple fix for organizational challenges.

Armchair Interviews highly recommends this book for business professionals and leadership researchers interested in understanding a new approach to leading people, building organizational effectiveness, and achieving higher financial performance.

As part of my Executive Education, I had the pleasure of attending a Senior Leadership course at the University of Michigan taught by DeGraff, Cameron, and Quinn. The class was primarily based upon the Competing Values Framework, the content found in this book. Organizations today are forced to confront change, implement competitive strategy, make a profit, develop leaders, attract and retain talent, and create value for shareholders. Leaders are continually confronted with the need to stay on the cutting edge, be innovative, articulate vision, nurture social capital, and effectively manage intangibles. Using the Competing Values Framework, this book identifies an approach and a set of strategies to address all these challenges. This book's framework can have many applications. I have used this model in leadership coaching, team building, and performance optimization, just to name a few. Anyone interested in creating financial and human capital value in their organization will find this book invaluable.
Allow the wisdom in this book to sink in. It has so many applications that it is scary, in fact. Start out with the four quadrants, and after deep consideration, other opportunities to apply the Framework will surface. I believe it is one of the reasons why so many academics apply its principles again and again.
