    Abstract

    The purpose of the article is to investigate the importance that differences in national culture characteristics have in explaining the relationship between competitive priorities and the investments in manufacturing practices. Several studies have investigated the role that national culture has in explaining the manufacturing practices effectiveness. The article provides an evaluation of how manufacturing investments decisions are put in place in different cultural settings coherently with the way through which companies have decided to compete. From this point of view the article contributes to the research stream of global manufacturing strategy.
