Abstract [en]

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to present and discuss results from a survey designed to measure baseline data in a project with the aim to support the development of value-based leadership that integrates company values, organizational culture, customer needs and sustainable development.

Methodology/approach – As part of a research project’s base line data collection, a survey designed to measure Leadership commitment, Participation of everybody, Lean values and Perceived co-worker health was developed and tested. The results were analyzed in order to meet each company’s specific need for developing their leadership and culture.

Findings – The results show a difference between the two examined companies, both when it comes to mean values and correlations between the measured factors. The results also indicate the importance of analyzing the results from surveys more in depth and together with other ways of examining culture in order to gain a better understanding of the company’s unique culture and leadership.

Practical implications – The presented survey and way of analyzing the results can help organizations in understanding their own unique needs when working to create a Lean culture as well as healthy co-workers in order to attain sustainable development.
