The aim of the present research is to assess intercultural competence level for two subcultures: specialists and managers working in multicultural organizations. In order to determine the intercultural competence level a new model based on Hofstede G., Chen and Naquin, and Warr theories of competence has been proposed. The paper is part of an international research project on intercultural competence organized in several countries. The research done is an example of how specialists and managers working for Latvian multicultural organizations assess Lithuanian, Estonian and Finnish co-workers. The main method used of the data collection for the statistical analysis is an online self-completion questionnaire. The basic conclusion is that the main forms of the augmentation of intercultural competence level of organizations are internships and business trips. The authors recommend to focus not only on the proposed or just one intercultural model, but compare and assess several intercultural models in the given context as building blocks of adopting a systems approach to intercultural competence in organizations.
