The aim of the study was to determinate students' intercultural differences in their viewpoint to human performance in organization according to group of factors using Blanchard and Thacker (2004) model. Corresponding survey was provided in Lithuania before (Kumpikaite and Alas, 2009). The following survey was decided to expand and to look at differences in intercultural context. Lithuania, Turkey, and Iran were taken as purpose countries. It was selected because countries are from different cultures, religions and situated from the West (Lithuania in Europe) to the East (Turkey situated in Europe and Asia - the Near East, and then Iran - the Middle East) in Eurasia and because authors of this paper work in these countries and deal with described problems.
