Purpose: This research aims to develop clear and concise scale items of organisational culture and the items would be general enough to be found in almost any type of organisation in any country over the world.

Design/methodology/approach: This study is mainly based on literature which contains a few models developed to describe and measure organisational culture. Components of organisational culture have been argued out from these past models. The dimensions of these components are identified from literature. These arguments have been augmented with discussions with peers.

Findings: A conceptual model is developed that will be tested in a future study to confirm its validity.
Research limitations/implications: Empirical study is needed to confirm this model. Although this model is at conceptual level, it may be used by investigators and practitioners, for instance, to carry out comparative studies of organisational cultures.

Originality/value: This study has presented relatively uncomplicated relationships between organisational work practice and other organisational cultural factors like values. A practical model is achieved to facilitate the measurement of organisational culture. This study is motivated by the desire to define the complex phenomenon „organisational culture‟ in a simple comprehensible way, which may be different from other studies
