ENGLISH SUMMARY : Using the Competitive Values Framework this thesis investigates organisational culture in the Gauteng Legislature. Chapter 1 reviews some factors that impact on organizational effectivity. Specific attention is paid to public-sector organizations. The Gauteng Legislature is chosen as a case study in this respect and relevant methodological information is given. Chapter 2 offers a literature overview on organisational culture, with special reference to the CVF. The four cultural types of this model are extensively discussed. Chapter 3 describes the case study and presents the results in graphic format. Chapter 4 draws conclusions. The dominant culture type in the Legislature is clearly hierarchical. It is argued than an Adhocratic style would benefit the Legislature better.
