Abstract

There is an increasing interest in the role of values in understanding organizational behavior. One of the most often used instruments is England's Personal Values Questionnaire (I), a 66-item measure of five categories of values: business goals (e.g., high productivity, industry leadership, organization growth), personal goals (e.g., achievement, money, power), groups of people (e.g., unigns, customers, stockholders), personal characteristics (e.g., honor, aggressiveness, conformity), and, general topics (e.g., competition, religion, emotions). Despite its use little information about the psychometric properties is available.
