Sample text

This autonomy, though, need not extend to questions of work organization and task definition. Few Japanese companies, for example, and even fewer Korean or Taiwanese ones, delegate the allocation and organization of jobs to manual workers, while being keen to involve them in problem-solving activities and grant many considerable discretion over task performance. In many Danish, German, and firms in some other European countries, on the other hand, employees have substantial influence on work-organization decisions, both formally and informally, particularly skilled workers (Kristensen 1992, 1997).

However, it may be that the powerful trade unions and pursuit of reputations for high levels of competence among occupational communities together function as coordinating devices here (Kristensen 1996). The connections between high mutual commitment employment systems and work-control practices are, on the other hand, clearer. g. Aoki 1988) have emphasized, integrating the bulk of the workforce into large, dominant enterprises as loyal and committed partners encourages firm-specific skill development, functional flexibility strategies, and the delegation of considerable autonomy over task performance.

In Chapter 2, the basic ways in which business systems vary as coordination and control systems are described and the key institutional features that impinge upon these identified. Similarly to the analyses of Lazonick, Orru et al, and others, a central concern here is the extent and mode of organizational coordination of economic activities. As many of the broadly institutionalist studies discussed above have suggested, the major institutions affecting this govern the organization and access to key resources such as capital and labour power, as well as the constitution of collective actors and how they compete.
