OLIVEIRA, Áurea de Fátima  e  GOMIDE JUNIOR, Sinésio. Organizational culture inventory: adaptation and validation of an instrument for diagnosis in the brazilian context. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.2, pp. 8-21. ISSN 1984-6657.

Nowadays, organizational culture - a multifaceted concept - has been intensively studied both nationally and internationally. Two research lines can be identified in these investigations: conceptualization and measurement, and also correlational studies with organizational performance criteria. This work, representative of the former, has adapted and validated the Organizational Culture Inventory (OCI), proposed by Cooke and Lafferty (1989), for the Brazilian context. One thousand and thirty-two employees from state and private companies in the region of Triângulo Mineiro took part in the study. The average age of these employees was 28, and 33.9% of them were men. Exploratory factorial analysis was used for the data analysis but it did not confirm the structure of the organizational culture proposed by Cooke and Lafferty (1989). The results pointed to a structure comprised of three distinct scales with factorial factors that vary from 0.30 to 0.72; with reliability index from 0.75 to 0.91, and variance percentages explained between 25.29 and 37.50. The results are discussed in the light of methodological and cultural differences, and a research agenda is recommended to include suggestions regarding conceptual and operational redefinitions, in addition to the use of the instrument in explanatory models related to organizational performance criteria
