A Study of Relationships Between the Organizational Climate Index and the Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire.
Owens, Robert G.; Steinhoff, Carl R.
This research attempts to find relationships between the Halpin-Croft Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire (OCDQ) and the Stern-Steinhoff Organizational Climate Index (OCI) in their respective descriptions of organizational phenomena. By organizational climate is meant those characteristics that distinguish the organization from others and that influence the behavior of people in the organization. The research design consisted of deriving a matrix of product-moment correlations from OCI and OCDQ factor standard scores. A significant relationship exists between the heuristic constructs developed by both Stern and Halpin. This conclusion does not imply that one instrument can successfully preclude the use of the other. (Author/LN)
