Most of the organisations have worded their values in their organisational strategies presented on their web pages and have hopefully made all the steps necessary to implement those values. In several cases, organisations have just worded their values, but the employees will not adapt to those. Since the values management is a quite well-described area, additional research seems not to be a priority. On the other hand, another aspect, which is important in using the values as a tool to achieve success, is the content of values. In other words, organisations need to know which values comply with the contemporary management paradigm and would support the organisations to achieve success. The same aspect is extremely important in the field of organisational quality management and assurance, where the real quality is shown through adapted (real) values, and at the same time, the shared values are one of the quality criteria of the postmodernist organisation. This chapter bases, on fact, that although values are quite popular topic of researches and theories, the values congruent with the organisational success is a mostly unexplored field. Therefore, the authors describe the impact of values on organisational success.
