What is Value.Online?
Individual and organisational development is crucial both for our personal lives and our businesses. While there are many tools available to improve and achieve results, working with values is one of the most effective.
Our unique Value.Online tool is a front-runner in the field of organisational and individual value work. So, how can our tool help you increase motivation, improve workplace atmosphere, and boost the efficiency of your operation? What exactly is Value.Online?
It is a process to discover your values
It is a unique, research-based
value ranking tool
Our system is both sophisticated and easy to use. With our cloud-based Value.Online tool, you can rank your values based on their importance to you. Thanks to the system’s interactivity, values are set against each other, and our tool and process are based on research and theories by Milton Rokeach, Brian Hall, Abraham Maslow, Shalom H. Schwartz, and others.
- Takes only 30 minutes
- Considers 128 unique values
- Works effectively for everyone
- Based on scientific research
Our database includes the 128 personal values that are the most common worldwide, each defined and presented with three synonyms. This allows the Value.Online process to cover almost 400 values, making it the most sophisticated system of its kind in the world.
The ranking generates several personal maps used for the next steps. These maps are based on research and theories of consciousness, adult development, and more by Erik H. Erikson, Jean Piaget, Robert Kegan, Abraham Maslow, Lawrence Kohlberg, Frederic Laloux, Bill Torbert, and others.
It is co-creating the future
The Value.Interact community is where facilitators, researchers, organisations, and clients come together to share their experiences, learn from each other, grow as professionals and individuals, and evolve their processes and products to create the next-generation, value-based future for individuals and organisations.
The process: an overview
Everything we do is based on three steps: Rank, Map and Act. The process is easy to apply and adapt to your needs, whether about significant organizational changes or personal development.

One Day to Value Congruence: For team and organizations
How is it done?
We have a well-proven workshop process for working with teams and organizations. But every organization is unique. So we consider the needs and circumstances of each organization and can customize the process as needed.
What happens before the workshop?
- We meet with the participants to present the process and answer questions. This takes about 30 minutes.
- Participants rank their personal values using our Value.Online system. We do this about a week before your workshop.
How does the workshop day work?
- In groups of three, we develop mapping and insight into personal values.
- Individuals present on how they prefer to work in groups and what relationships and roles they’re comfortable with.
- We rank the group’s shared priorities and behaviors based on the group’s assignments and goals. We then discuss and decide on 3–5 values that should be guiding the team’s actions.
- We discuss and strategize how they should be implemented and followed up in everyday actions.
What’s the follow-up?
A few months after the workshop, we have 2–3 hours with the team and make a new ranking of the common values. This lets us coach and offers tips and suggestions to work more effectively and address any issues.
Teams often make a mistake from the beginning. They create rules for the group before knowing each other’s values or clearly articulating what these rules mean.
We reverse that process.
A prerequisite for the team to successfully agree on norms that everyone commits to and promotes for new employees and customers is to start with the group as individuals. Only when each individual has insight into and can convey their personal values and motivations to the group can the journey towards congruence begin.
The concept of value congruence means that the values of the employees and the organization are consistent in a group and organizational context. Value congruence is the prerequisite for creating a collaborative culture in the workplace or in the association and is the key to increased motivation, a better work environment and an efficient business.
