Outlines Japanese history and thinking patterns. Discusses how post war Japan was ready to assimilate the “quality” ideas of Dr. Deming. Asserts that the key to Japanese success lies not in the systems, but in the people who run the system, managers and managed, and how they relate to each other. Discusses the seniority system and the importance of life‐time employment. Notes that knowledge is spread and shared, and that concern for the common good is said to be the prime motivation of a Japanese company.
