Abstract : The report summarizes the major findings of the personal values project conducted at the University of Minnesota for the past six years. A number of studies have been completed dealing with various groups of individuals in diverse organizational settings (managers, educational administrators, union leaders and naval officers). These studies clearly show that personal values are both measurable and important to measure. Values are related to such practical and important concerns as decision making, managerial success and organizational context differences. This review of the findings also raises a number of questions which still need to be answered. (Modified author abstract)
