ABSTRACT
As the name suggests, the normogram method was developed by the author as a result of a critical engagement with sociometric techniques, to which it is proposed as an alternative. The normogram consists of a process in which groups, organizational subsystems or smaller organizations are induced to ascertain and formulate explicitly the system's own internal norms and to classify group members according to these normative expectations. The normogram is thus a non-standardized procedure with a strongly interventionist character which employs the internal perspective of a system. In this article, the presentation of the method will be augmented by the concrete empirical example of a group of managers. The results of this case study make possible both a comparison of sociometric and normogram procedures and an evaluation of the extent to which the normogram method introduces a new dimension to the study of groups and organizations on the one hand, and to the subject of norms in general, on the other hand.
