Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)


This chapter reviews the theoretical concepts related to adaptation and acceptance of Japanese management. As mentioned in Chap. 1, Japanese managers transplant their management practices to Thailand. However, conflicts in Japanese manufacturing organizations occur when the Japanese management practices which work well in Japan, are not appropriate to the Thai culture. Implicit in this assumption is the notion that failing to adapt Japanese management practices in Thailand decreases the motivation and performance of Thai subordinates, and hence decreases business efficiency. This is followed by a discussion on how these concepts and gaps within the management literature have been used to formulate the proposed research questions for the present book.
