Abstract

Presents a German viewpoint of the approach chosen by large Japanese enterprises to recruit and develop future managers. After a short introduction to the Japanese educational system, presents the different stages of the selection of up‐and‐coming managers in Germany and Japan. Provides an overview of the basic personnel development strategies. Discusses the question of whether and in which way Japanese methods of junior staff development are applicable to enterprises in western, more individualistic cultures.
