KUBO, Edson Keyso de Miranda; GUTIERREZ CASTRO, Denise; DOMINGUES NUNES, Vinícius  and  THIAGO, Fernando. Frankenstein and organizational climate: Bibliographic study on an indefinite construct. Rev. Int. Investig. Cienc. Soc. [online]. 2015, vol.11, n.1, pp.35-54. ISSN 2226-4000.

Bibliographic research about the organizational climate, which constitutes a construct of wide use in People Management. The climate has been approached in many ways, with many definitions and models that explain it and there is no consensus on its definition and measurement. This article aims to bring together research on Organizational Climate, presenting the theoretical divergences of the authors who contributed to its creation, seeking evidence on reasons for existing differences between their approaches. As a result, one can find the remarkable and necessary differences between the criteria that make up the construct, since it contemplates the need to include the perception of organizational policies and practices. It is therefore a construct that refers to the idea shaped Shelley (2012)´s creature, formed by separate pieces of other creatures and without acertain core that ensures full  existence, thus allowing the metaphorical relationship to Frankenstein's monster.

Keywords : Organizational Climate; Organizational Diagnosis; Climate models.
