What is VOX – short introduction regarding the instrument and the idea

Vox is an instrument for analyzing the organizational alignment, its manifestations and practical implication. It shows different approach in defining and explaining the organizational culture and organizational alignment.

VOX instrument was born as a result of few unanswered questions:

  1. Are instruments that are relevant for one organizational culture relevant for another organizational culture?
  2. Does an instrument which corresponds in Eastern part of the world, corresponds with the “behavior” dimensions to the West?

There are four elements, grouped in two main orientations:

  1. Participative Management:
    • Decision Making Style
      Decision-making and behavior policies of the company, measured on two poles: Autocratic versus Participative or Democratic.
    • Work Environment
      Social care or the human relations within the company, measured on two poles: Cold Versus Warm Work Environment.
    • Organizational Openness
      Collaboration of the members of the organization and cooperation between organization and its environments, measured on two poles: Closed Versus Open Organization.
  2. Entrepreneurial Orientation:
    • Innovation vs. Risk Taking
      Tendency toward risk taking by the company and its employees, measured on two poles: Conservative (or Risk averse) and Entrepreneurial or Open to Risk.
