Abstract


In this study, it is aimed to develop an organizational obedience scale that gives information about the obedience tendencies of white-collar employees working in the private sector. In this framework, thirty-one item seven-point Likert-type scale consisting of general expressions was prepared to measure obedience, which is the basis of employee behavioral tendencies. This scale was applied to the employees of small and medium-sized enterprises operating in the Marmara Region and academicians working at the university. The data obtained from the questionnaires, which were accepted as valid as a result of the examination, were analyzed with the SPSS 22 program. Within the scope of the analysis, the validity and reliability values of the scale were examined and valid findings were obtained as a result of the Cronbach-Alpha (α) value, KMO value and Barlett's test of sphericity. In addition, the convergent and divergent validity of the scale was also demonstrated by the findings. In summary, it was concluded that the Exploratory (EFA) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) of the Organizational Obedience Scale, which was tried to be developed, were at the level of validity and reliability that could reveal the obedience levels of private and public sector employees.
