    Abstract

    The values-driven organization model strives to increase values enactment -- the extent to which employees engage in behaviors consistent with or representative of the organization's dominant values. The model presumes that higher values enactment is possible through values engineering, which involves strategies to alter individual values so they are similar to the organization's dominant values. Although values engineering is widely advocated in the values-driven organization literature, it has a number of logical and practical problems. This paper identifies these problems and proposes a radically departure from the values engineering approach by describing how frame-of-reference training may improve values enactment among employees.
