Competing models of management refer to those models that attempt to explain the
competing value framework of organizational management. The organizational management
sometimes faces the management challenge of balancing between two or more important
processes that affect the operation of an organization. The competing value framework is a
model that was developed by Robert Quinn and Kim Cameron to assess the organizational
culture (Cameron & Quinn 1999). The theory of competing for value framework, in essence,
shows the interrelationship between processes that enable the organization to focus on the
internal environment or external environment. The area of focus of an organization leads to the
development of the organizational culture and often results in a balancing of two or more
competing value factors. This implies that the organizational competing value framework models
