Breckenridge Culture Indicator™: An Innovative Assessment of Organizational Culture

The measurement of an organization’s culture is among the most complex and perplexing in the world of consulting and training. Numerous models and researchers have attempted to provide a compelling evaluation of the mechanisms of culture. We have been looking for over a decade for an assessment tool that would be a scientifically sound measurement of the most critical aspects of organizational culture. With the Breckenridge Culture Indicator™ we have the most comprehensive and compelling scientifically-based assessment currently available.

If you work as an organizational development consultant on the “culture” of an organization, you know that the culture is made up of the patterns of behaviors—actions and reactions—that affect choices and decisions. Often these behaviors are driven by tacit, unexamined assumptions and beliefs about how to get things done. This leads to conflicts, hidden motivators, and powerful scripts on how to be effective within a given organization. In short, an invisible bureaucracy runs the organization. Based on Mark Bodnarczuk’s new book, Making Invisible Bureaucracy Visible, the goal of the BCI™ is to make this invisible dynamic visible through a sound assessment methodology.

BCI™ Assessment

The BCI™ is a psychometrically-validated assessment tool designed to help identify key elements of culture such as:

  • Key Stakeholders (Customers, Owners, Employees, Community, Society, Leadership)
  • Organizational Alignment (Strategic View, Execution, Organizational Climate)
  • Fours Ways of Working™ (Production, Connection, Direction, and Integration)
  • Emotional Messages
  • Organizational Trust index™
  • Financial Impact over Three years

The BCI™ Level 1 Certification can be achieved by registering for this course. When you complete the program, you will have your own individually managed account with the Breckenridge Institute® so you can easily manage your culture assessment projects.

The BCI™ is published by The Breckenridge Institute®, a research center for the study of organizational culture based in Boulder, CO. The Breckenridge Institute® continually collects and analyzes data to insure that you are working with a dynamic and effective tool.
