Definition of Power distance index (PDI):

  1. A measure of how a culture, such as a country, business or team, recognizes hierarchy. A totalitarian regime has a high power distance index, while a democracy has a low index.

The index was conceived by Geert Hofstede, Emeritus Professor of Maastricht University.
