The concept of dispositional resistance to change has been introduced in a series of exploratory and confirmatory analyses through which the validity of the resistance-to-change (RTC) scale has been established (Oreg, 2003). However, the vast majority of participants with which the scale was validated were from the United States. The purpose of the present work was to examine the meaningfulness of the construct, and the validity of the scale, across nations. Measurement equivalence analyses of data from 17 countries, representing 13 languages and four continents, confirmed the cross-national validity of the scale. Equivalent patterns of relationships between personal values and RTC across samples extend the nomological net of the construct and provide further evidence that dispositional resistance to change holds equivalent meanings across nations.
