    Today nearly all European countries have established national quality assurance systems. Nearly all systems involve four main elements: quality assurance agency, self-evaluation report, peers review and public report on evaluation results. Central and Eastern European countries (Lithuania among them) are still using accreditation practices and focusing only on minimum standards, using narrow and specific criteria while disregarding the overall educational context, impinging on academic freedom, being a restraint on innovation and quality enhancement. Increasing autonomy of higher education institutions and responsibility for the activities stimulate changes in external quality assurance looking for right balance between autonomy and control. This article is aimed at formulating the answer to the question – what changes of external quality assurance should be introduces in order to stimulate internal quality assurance processes and promoting autonomy of higher education institutions. The formation of universal quality assurance model was highly influenced by the alterations in European higher education area. Although all the systems comprise the same elements, they use difference quality assurance procedures that differ in aims and objects.

    Modern dynamic business environments, which seeks to maintain competitiveness and strengthen position in products or services market, in many countries organizations tend to economical interdependency. Almost all for-profit companies’ owners in Lithuania, top, mid and purchase managers have to inevitably cooperate and negotiate with suppliers or manufacturers from other counties. In other words, for business growth it is vital to maintain connection with people of different culture. Cross cultural communication and negotiation between members of different culture often is accompanied with various threats due to cultural differences and low cross cultural competence of members. This could also be because it is impossible to create a share understanding of the environment with two or more culturally different parties participating. Culture may be different in various aspects: language, behaviour, values, attitude, beliefs, traditions, so trying to guess other culture spokesman according to oneself rarely pays off. That’s why participants of cross cultural communication meet serious challenges occurring with clarification of message initial meaning and correct way of decoding the message. Process of international transaction formation is accompanied by invisible barriers which are inspired by negotiation styles, verbal and non-verbal language and behaviour, but most often there is ethnocentrical understanding and interpretations. In such case cross cultural communication process is affected and hardened and as a result many cross cultural business deals are insoluble just as they start. This is important cross cultural communication and negotiation problem which should be discussed in various organizations and in international level. [...]
