Dimensions of Hofstede Applied on a Company

Is it possible to use the Model by Hofstede on a company?
What I am looking for is a model to give insight in how a company currently works, the company culture. I might add some other things to the 5 dimensions.
I want to compare this to a few other types of companies, and 'determine' if they are compatible. Basically I want to compare companies and know in which way they are run.
I am not looking for something to change the company, just something to have an understanding of the way it is currently going.

Hofstede's Cultural Dimensions at Corporate Level

Hello Chris!
Yes with a little tweaking you can adapt Hofstede's dimensions to a corporate structure well. YouŽll just have to imagine the parameters within a corporate culture, e.g. "masculinity" that is applicable on leadership issues, "power distance" to governing structure etc.
It is quite similar phenomenon both in macro and micro environments!
