Values are the fundamental beliefs and guiding principles of a person or an organisation. They support the vision and mission, shape the organisational culture and reflect what an organisation stands for.
The toolkit Defining Values is useful when your organisation:
- needs to develop its identity and the values it stands for.
- has expanded and needs to strengthen the organisational culture through values.
- needs ways to clearly articulate its philosophy, methods, and goals to stakeholders and team members.
