The Values Survey Module questionnaire was administered to the willing employees of 10 Aboriginal governments and four non-Aboriginal governments in Canada. Each government is affiliated with one of the Algonquin, Athabascan or Anglo-Canadian ethno-linguistic traditions. Indices on five dimensions of culture were calculated for each participating government using the VSM formulas. Owing to the small number of participating governments, an alternate method that is based on the VSM was also developed to explore the data
The study hypothesized that differences would be found in the indices of governments that do not share the same ethno-linguistic tradition. Statistical tests were conducted to determine whether the VSM and the alternate method could identify differences in the indices of culturally different groups. Tests were conducted typically between two groups, i.e., Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal governments, and among three groups, i.e., Algonquin, Athabascan and non-Aboriginal governments
The tests confirmed that the VSM and the alternate method are able to identify differences among culturally different groups and showed that the alternate method is better able than the VSM to find differences among small numbers of groups. The results support some of the predictions in the Canadian management literature about the relative positions of the VSM indices of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal groups. The research shows that Aboriginal groups in Canada are culturally diverse and that comparisons that are made at the level of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal groups mask differences that become evident when analyses are conducted at the level of three or four groups
