Abstract

The convergence/divergence debate, which has been a central theme in the English language literature on the Japanese enterprise and its management, is summarized. Evidence for and against convergence between Japanese and Western organizations is reviewed during specific historical periods, and the adequacy of competing models that explain differences between managerial practices in Japanese and Western enterprises is examined.
