Show Summary Details


This concluding chapter summarizes the key themes of the book. The Strategy-Structure-Institutions (SSI) Framework is used to derive specific propositions, and predict the future of Japanese firms and unions. The framework exhibits a relatively high degree of variety as it highlights the importance of the interaction of strategy and structure on both sides of industry to accommodate considerable variations within a sector. It is also used to explore some broader comparative implications in specific advanced economies, including Germany and the United States.

Keywords: Japanese firms; Japanese unions; comparative analysis; Germany
