dc.description.abstract The main objective of this study was to investigate the metric properties of the Hofstede Value Survey Module-94 (VSM-94). The questionnaire was evaluated against criteria for test construction. The VSM-94 consisting of 20 items was administered to 231 female managers in a large telecommunications organisation. The inter-correlations of the item scores were empirically investigated. Anti-image inter-correlations were executed on the 20 item-scores. Items with low measures of sampling adequacy (MSA) were omitted and a factor analysis and an anti-image intercorrelation conducted on the remaining eight items. Uniformly item-response distributions and low item intercorrelations resulted in poor reliability coefficients on the final factors, which suggests that the VSM-94 is probably not suitable for use in the South African context. en
