Abstract

Cross-cultural aspects of management, especially international business management, have been a topic of intense investigation in the contemporary management literature. Consequently, given the higher presence of Japanese businesses in Thailand, a fertile field in international management literature is the adaptation of Japanese management practices in Thailand. Prior empirical studies of Japanese management practices in Thailand have mainly focused on Thai employees' perceptions of these practices and on how well they are implemented, with very little research examining factors that influence the adaptation and acceptance of Japanese management practices in Thailand. To fill this gap, this study develops models that are helpful in examining factors that can be introduced by Japanese organizations in Thailand to enable Thai subordinates to accept, and Japanese managers to adapt, Japanese management practices to Thai culture.
