[eng] Abstract . The Productivity Movement began late in Japan, with the creation in 1955 of the Japan Centre of Productivity. Sustained by the International Cooperation Administration (ICA), the Technical Aid Program had positive consequences on the economy of Japan. First the Japanese businessmen adopted mass production, mass marketing, and a decentralized organisation of business, after the American model. Secondly Japanese people adopted an increasing productivity by building an efficient style of management and mixing traditional practices and innovations borrowed from America. Finally this productivity movement was not limited to only a technological dimension but it was a new attitude, opened to new methods of management.
