This chapter describes the new forms of business and production organization in Japan and the ‘third Italy’ (new competition), which exposed the limitations in production organization of managerial capitalism. These forms include ‘networks’ of firms (in the shape of large corporations in Japan and small firm industrial districts in Italy), inter-firm relations, new production concepts such as just-in-time, and the role of industrial policy. The problems of this form of business and production organization are described. The business and production organization forms responsible for the resurgence of US high-tech industry (network-based systems integration) are examined.

Keywords:   Japan, third Italy, business and production organization, managerial capitalism, networks
