Fresh off a study that identified key factors for comparing national cultures, organizational psychologist Geert Hofstede and his team set off to determine whether similar constructs could be deduced for organizational cultures. The success of this research is detailed in Hofstede's classic 1990 paper, "Measuring Organizational Cultures: A Qualitative and Quantitative Study Across Twenty Cases," published in Administrative Science Quarterly. Through surveys and interviews among members of twenty units within ten large organizations, Hofstede's team proposed six distinct determinants of organizational culture that could be compared and contrasted across all organizations.
