This paper presents a qualitative approach to the comparative analysis of the existing cultural dimensions systems. It selected three of the most appreciated cultural dimensions systems elaborated by Hofstede, Trompenaars and the GLOBE project. The characteristics of the cultural dimensions of each approach were subjected to a content analysis in order to identify the values captured by each dimension. The system of cultural values proposed by Milton Rokeach was established as the basis for coding peculiarities. The results of the analysis demonstrated conceptual similarities and differences among the above mentioned cultural dimensions systems, the level of their conceptual development and the extent to which they match the system of human values. These results allowed the author to identify the shortcomings of these cultural dimensions systems and the issues that require more attention in the context of intercultural research.
