Japanese-Style Inter-Organizational Relationships
AbstractIn the past, the Japanese company was regarded as a single entity. But a new way of thinking is to regard it from the viewpoint of inter-organizational relationships. For instance, while General Motors Corporation (GM) has 700,000 employees, Toyota Motor Corporation has only 80,000 employees. But the business group of Toyota as a whole employs 300,000 workers (of which 210,000 are members of Toyota labor unions affiliated with the Toyota Federation of Unions). Considering the 300,000 employees of the Toyota business group, we can easily see that it is not Toyota Motor Corporation, but the Toyota group, which corresponds to GM.
