Resumo

KOKT, D  e  VAN DER MERWE, CA. Using the Competing Values Framework (CVF) to investigate organisational culture in a major private security company. S. Afr. j. econ. manag. sci. [online]. 2009, vol.12, n.3, pp. 343-352. ISSN 1015-8812.

The proliferation of crime, especially in the South African context, has placed considerable emphasis on the private security industry. This has also increased fierce competition in the private security domain with both national and international private security companies infiltrating the South African market. Like public policing private security has an important role to play in combating crime and other transgressions, with the exception that private security owes its existence to paying customers. By using the Competing Values Framework (CVF) as conceptual guide, the researchers are able to provide the managers of the company under investigation with insight on how their cultural orientation affects their functioning and ultimately their competitive advantage.

Palavras-chave : Organisational culture; Competing Values Framework (CVF); private security.
