This study aims to explore and compare the effect of organizational culture profiles (Rational, Hierarchical, Developmental, and Group culture) on performance as a single-factor and as a multi-factor construct. Based on data collected in 250 firms in Brazil and Denmark, two theoretical models are tested using Structural Equation Modeling. The findings show that, when considering performance as a single factor, only the Rational culture has a positive effect on performance. When performance is considered as a multi-factor construct, all the relationships between organizational culture profiles and performance groups were positive and significant. Thus, the effect of culture on performance varies depending on the type of performance measured. These findings contribute to theory showing that characteristics of each cultural profile are related to specific types of performance. Managers should understand this fit in order to ensure congruence between their organization’s performance goals and characteristics of its internal culture.
