Abstract:
This study examines differences in corporate culture between Japanese firms as expressed in championing behaviors. The results of a survey of 678 managers in 8 Japanese firms concerning their preferences regarding innovation championing styles are reported. These show that the emphasis in previous research on the similarities between Japanese firms should be abandoned. In addition, the present study lends important support to the assumption of independence of organizational culture from social environment.
