Abstract

Cultural dimension model is an ongoing research by Global Leadership & Organisational Behaviour Effectiveness (GLOBE) published in the late 1970s by Dr. Geert Hofstede. Till date, the research on the model gave rise to six dimensions regarding their impact on change: power distance, individualism, uncertainty avoidance, masculinity, long-term orientation, and indulgence. The present study is an attempt to validate the cultural value dimensions in the Indian context. Rokeach value survey result was analysed by collecting the data from 90 students across India and analysis was done between the six Indian dimension scores of Hofstede and the ranking that came out of the value survey. Thus, the researchers tried to look for relationships existing between Indian Values and Hofstede’s cultural value dimensions in today’s Indian context
