ADOPTING JAPANESE‐STYLE MANUFACTURING METHODS: A TALE OF TWO (UK) FACTORIES*
Nick Oliver and
Journal of Management Studies, 1990, vol. 27, issue 5, 555-570
Japanese manufacturing methods such as just‐in‐time production and total quality control are serving as a model of manufacturing organization which many UK manufacturers are currently emulating. This article describes the implementation of just‐in‐time production and its supporting practices in two factories owned by the same company. Empirical evidence demonstrates a profoundly political dimension to these innovations, requiring a significant rewriting of organizations’ political and cultural maps.
