Evaluating the Organizational Culture of the Union Township Fire Department - Clermont County, Ohio [open pdf - 215KB]
"The purpose of this research project was to evaluate the organizational culture of the Union Township Fire Department. This was done to identify its current climate as well as understand needs, priorities, weaknesses, strengths and at least lay the foundations to which further research could be done at a later date to measure change and make recommendations for change as necessary. An evaluative research procedure was used to analyze the current organizational climate. This was done through surveys of employees of the department. In conjunction with the survey, a literature review was conducted. Following the survey, a baseline of the organization would be developed that would give a snapshot in time reflective of where the organization was at that time. From that baseline, and with information from the literature review, plans could be developed for future organizational change and development."
