Formatted abstract
The following key issues in organisational climate are investigated: (1) the redundancy of the construct, (2) the appropriate level of analysis, (3) problems of aggregation, and (4) the problem of measurement. The view was taken that the climate construct was not redundant, and a critical analysis was made of the psychological climate construct and the questionnaire approach to its operational measurement as well. A study was performed on a measurement problem involving the orientation of the items of a climate questionnaire towards two different referent levels. No significant difference in the climate mean scores was obtained between the two referent levels used. Suggestions for future research include the search for objective measures of climate.
