Abstract

The paper deals with national culture and organizational culture assessment methods and applies the Denison Organization Culture Survey to measure organizational culture in Lithuanian SME in Kaunas region. The paper aims to define the impact of national culture dimensions on organizational culture dimensions by applying comparative analysis for Taiwan, Mexico and Lithuania. The comparative analysis revealed that power distance is positively related to involvement, but negatively related to the traits of consistency, adaptability and mission. Individualism vs. collectivism is negatively related to all the organizational traits except involvement. Masculinity vs. femininity is positively connected to involvement, but negatively to other traits. Uncertainty avoidance is positively linked to all the organizational traits except consistency. Long term vs. short term orientation is positively associated to the organizational traits involvement and consistency, but negatively related to adaptability and mission.
