Focuses on the training practices of Japanese firms and explains, in part, some of the phenomenal successes of their global and domestic operations. Relevant information was gathered by a survey questionnaire from 110 Japanese managers working in Japan (in ten manufacturing and ten service companies).

In addition, training is viewed by the Japanese as a means to improve work and to improve retention of managers.
