This chapter focuses on the Japanese managerial challenge. It shows that the generations that experienced post-war occupation and reconstruction (1945–60) and the era of high growth-industrialization and globalization (1960–85) ‘renegotiated’ Japanese management within the constraints of the nation's shared values. The rise of a Japanese management mystique and the collapse of the American one was contingent on how these shared values guided post-war political, social, and economic events.
