This chapter presents a study of supplier development activities in the automobile sector. The national institutions of corporate governance in Japan make it easier for all Japanese automobile companies to engage in know-how exchange beyond legally distinct units of financial control. Despite this institutional environment, Toyota has emerged as unique in its strategy and internal structure for engaging in such capability enhancement activities, compared to Nissan and other Japanese automobile companies.

Keywords:   supplier development, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, know-how exchange, capabilities
