In an increasingly globalized and competitive world, where intangibles could explain to eighty per cent of the value in the firms, the culture turns out essential in many organizations becoming a differentiating factor that boosts competitiveness. It is considered as a discrimination element within the strategic-social concept of intellectual capital. Therefore, the interest of measuring it arises. The particular idiosyncrasy of the organizational culture, as well as its intangible condition, poses significant difficulties in this measurement. Consequently, this paper proposes a procedure for measuring organizational culture which organizes the information in such a way that facilitates decision-making in the management field En un mundo cada vez más globalizado y competitivo, donde los intangibles pueden llegar a explicar hasta el ochenta por ciento del valor de las empresas, la consideración de la cultura se torna fundamental, llegando en muchas organizaciones a ser un elemento diferenciador que potencia dicha competitividad. Se considera como componente discriminante dentro del concepto estratégico social de capital intelectual. De ahí el interés de medirla. La particular idiosincrasia de la cultura organizacional, así como su condición de intangible plantea dificultades importantes a la hora de establecer su medición, por lo que este trabajo propone un procedimiento para medirla que lleva aparejado la organización de la información correspondiente de un modo que facilita la toma de decisiones en el ámbito de la dirección empresarial
