Research into Leader-Member Exchange (LMX) theory has been well popularised by the researchers of Behavioural Science in recent years, with a multitude of studies investigating many aspects of LMX in organizations. The present article tries to evaluate the agreement between leaders perspective of LMX and subordinates perspective of LMX analysing deep into the researches on LMX-agreement and evaluate it empirically to perceive the Vertical Dyad Linkage (VDL) theory in the light of this mutual agreement. The research encompasses the method of establishing the validity of the relationship and draws a parity of perception of the leader and the subordinate about the dyad while evaluating the quality of LMX and the focus of each on the dyad. Data of a healthcare unit with 154 sample size is used in explaining and establishing the theory by drawing correlations between the ratings done by both the participants of the dyad. The process well explained the theory with a few exceptions while raising a new research question of the exception being related to the size of a work-group, which can have a future research scope.
