This study is a suggestion of using Hofstede Cultural Model to bring about organizational effectiveness. Being based on Hofstede cultural dimensions it helps determine the ways to achieve effectiveness within an organization. 123 responses were received and evaluated. Significant results have been determined and concluded that culture has a significant impact on organizational effectiveness. Four most well known variables of Hofstede Cultural Framework were used namely, power distance, collectivism vs. individualism, masculinity vs. femininity, and uncertainty avoidance. A general model of organizational effectiveness was made based on Georgeopoulos and Mann’s study on community general hospital for determining effectiveness. To a surprise only two of the Hofstede Cultural Model had been found significantly related to organizational effectiveness. This research has also suggested ways to use Hofstede Cultural Model to not only determine national culture or organizational culture but rather how the model can improve performances and bring about overall effectiveness.
