Typically the introduction of Japanese management in North American manufacturing enterprises has occurred by replicating Japanese production processes and employing individuals with little previous experience. This study analyzes the transition of one television-component manufacturing plant from American to Japanese management and attempts to account for the increased productivity achieved. The case study also details the difficulties encountered by the new owner-company in redesigning this complex organization.
