This article describes this researcher's development and validation of a new attitudinal scale to measure Hall's seminal cross-cultural dimension of High-Low Context communication within a business setting. The article also presents some initial empirical findings from the authors’ recent study of Context Communication Values within the Norwegian business culture to support the face validity of the scale. The instrument developed and validated in this study contains a parsimonious five-item measurement and was empirically tested with data collected from a sample of 710 Norwegian middle managers. The psychometric properties of the scale are assessed in terms of dimensionality, reliability and validity, and the results indicate that the measure constructed to assess High-Low Context in a business setting is psychometrically sound.
