Managers in the Making Careers, Development and Control in Corporate Britain and Japan by John Storey, Paul Edwards and Keith Sisson pdf free download. The analysis presented in this book results from a detailed and systematic comparative study of British and Japanese managers and the way they are ‘made’. The study was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) over a three-year period. The fieldwork was conducted in Britain and Japan.

The study was one of the lead projects in the ESRC’s Competitiveness of British Industry Initiative. This initiative was launched in order to encourage a coordinated assault on the underlying sources of competitive success in economic enterprises. A team of scholars (at that time all located at the University of Warwick) was awarded a grant to undertake comparative case studies in Britain and Japan. The aim was to understand, describe, and evaluate the dynamics at play in the way managers were made in these countries. The Warwick team included Keith Sisson, Paul Edwards, John Storey, Ian Gow and Lola Okazaki-Ward. The last two subsequently relocated to the University of Stirling.

Ian Gow was a member of the group which produced the ‘Handy report’ published in 1 987 under the title The Making of Managers (Handy, 1 987). His long-standing and in-depth knowledge of Japan gave a sound foundation for the study reported here. Lola OkazakiWard was born in Japan and had previous experience working for a Japanese company in Europe. Her facility with the Japanese language enabled in-depth interviews to be conducted with all levels of management in Japan. It also allowed other methods of data collection including, for example, the translation of company documentation into English.

Both Ian Gow and Lola Okazaki-Ward made invaluable contributions to the success of the ESRC research project. We also acknowledge the help given by the many managers and other officials in both Britain and Japan. In Britain, managers at Lucas, National Westminster Bank, British Telecom and Tesco were generous with their time and helpful with accounts of their experiences. In Japan, managers at Sumitomo, Mitsui Trust and Banking, NTT and Jusco were genial and cooperative.
