This study is an exploratory research of two phases using the mixed method design in data collection. It aimed to determine the value congruence between the perceived and the preferred organizational values in a school organization, and endeavored to ascertain the factors that affect the development of an organizational culture characterized by a greater degree of congruence between the person and the organization.
A survey was done of 116 respondents, using the Organizational Value Opinionnaire, where congruence was determined through absolute difference scores. Triangulation was done through: In-depth Interview of 20 Key Informants, Focus Group Discussion of 15 participants, and Organizational Process Analysis conducted in three big colleges. Findings from the quantitative phase revealed that the predominant organizational value dimension of the university is UNITY OF PURPOSE, while that of the faculty members is the PROVISION OF PHYSICAL RESOURCES. There was no congruence found between the faculty and the institution brought about by differences in intensely held values, dominant cultures, and the deficiency of factors that affected the congruence of the perceived and the preferred organizational cultures. Findings from the qualitative phase revealed the four organizational values intensely held by the faculty members in WMSU, namely: Interpersonal relationship, leadership, work motivation and integrity. It also disclosed that the university intensely held the following organizational values: Professional Development as an individual concern, and Communication is limited only to Information Dissemination. Results further identified four factors that affected the congruence of the perceived and the preferred organizational cultures, and these included: Leadership Competencies, Faculty Initiative, The College Atmosphere, and Support from the Higher Administration.
