Grammar's a little funky throughout, could do with a cleanup. Jachra 07:53, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Decline of acceptance of the Japanese hierarchical system[edit]

I've been studying Japanisation of the West for the HR module of an MBA course I'm doing. One of the things I've been reading about is that altough the collectivism, long term planning and permanent job expecation (i.e.: job for life) would suggest that Japanese workers are more satisfied with their jobs than westenr workers, research suggests otherwise. Many employers, in particular from mid/late twenties to early/mid thirties are not as satisfied as people would imagine. One of the suggestions is that with the decline of the Japanase style of management, in order for them to be more globaly competitive, was the introduction of rewards, bonuses and promotions based on performance instead of seniority. Ad the introduction of change in appraisals had an impact on how the youth perceive the elderly inside the workspace, and draw criticism to the idea of hierarchical/seniorty system of promotion.

My sources are:

  • "Management and Organisational Behaviour", 7th Edition, by Mullins (2005, FT)
  • "Japanese Management - a Sun Rising in the West?, Peter B. Smith and Jyuji Misumi

The India section seems to be an advertisement for a business course. There is also no need to focus on one specific country's view on Japanese management. I've commented it out but it should probably be removed altogether. (talk) 12:44, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Ummmmm, plagiarism, anyone?[edit]

This is really bad. The person who took this didn't even put in the effort to make it look different. This article should be entirely reworked.
