Abstract:Since the 1980s, transferability of Japanese management systems (JMSs) abroad has become an increasing focus of research. However, the conclusions emerging from studies in this field have been conflicting. The main reasons for discordance have been the use of vague definitions of terms and varying methods employed by researchers to measure the international transferability of the JMSs. This paper first identifies the different streams in literature, and then discusses how these differences emerged. It proposes a research agenda to expose critical issues that one needs to consider in future research regarding international transfer of JMSs.
