Overview

power distance


Quick Reference

Is one of the attributes of national cultures identified by Geert Hofstede. It refers to the degree to which members of a group or organization accept an uneven distribution of power amongst their members. In some cultures with large power-distance it is regarded as acceptable that power is concentrated in the hands of senior managers, whilst in other cultures there is an expectation that power will be diffused. [See individualism-collectivism and uncertainty avoidance.]
