According to the date analysis with 1914 samples of JCCs from the statistical date by "The 21st Century China Research Institute", the result told us the majority of JCCs adopting Japanese as their CEO, regardless of a diversity of conditions, except for the locational disadvantage of inland regions and the joint decision making due to contractual alliance of joint undertakings. The impact on the effectiveness of global management due to over reliance on staffing from headquarters cannot be neglected. Managerial implications of the staffing strategy of Japanese MNCs are discussed for the purpose of improving their global HRM practices.
