Abstract

Social and psychological factors such as self‐responsibility and collectivist value orientation are crucial to understanding the dynamics of joint venture management. Tests the hypothesis that structural factors influence the socio‐psychological orientation of managers in terms of self‐responsibility and collectivist values which, in turn, affects the performance of companies. Discusses the findings from interviews and questionnaires with 151 top and middle managers from 72 companies. Found that top managers have a higher internally determined self‐responsibility and a stronger group adaptation value orientation than middle managers. These factors are crucial indicators of managerial performance in joint ventures. Therefore the results support the hypothesis.

Abstract

HRM and decision‐making patterns can affect the overall effectiveness of joint ventures. Discusses the results of case studies of Chinese‐Japanese and wholly Japanese ventures in China. Proposes that the Japanese managerial strategies may be more suited to building the new management norms in the initial phases of the joint venture while the Chinese managerial style ensures continued progress, within the Chinese cultural context, in the more advanced stages of the joint venture.
