When we stay on theme.

I lis­te­ned to this while wri­ting this post, try it while you read :o)

I’m going to conti­nue on my lite­ra­ry momen­tum. Things are still quite bleak online today. I hope you enjoy rea­ding as much as I do wri­ting. Let’s go. A book that has influen­ced many of the pre­vious­ly cited authors is William G. Ouchi’s “Theo­ry Z”. Ouchi’s work in this book is none other than to com­pare Japa­nese orga­ni­za­tio­nal culture with that of America.

This is a major chal­lenge, consi­de­ring that the two nations have a fun­da­men­tal­ly dif­ferent his­to­ry. You don’t have to be a his­to­ry expert to know that Ame­ri­ca was first colo­ni­zed by Euro­peans and that there is very lit­tle trace of the first Asian immi­grants from the pre­his­to­ric era (say, dating back ~25,000 years!) and from their des­cen­dants in contem­po­ra­ry orga­ni­za­tio­nal culture.

Ouchi should be read with cer­tain pre­cau­tions. He him­self must be the bea­rer of a very strong “patriar­chy” because he colours his work with seve­ral ste­reo­ty­pi­cal refe­rences that some­times sting the eyes of a sen­si­tive rea­der, me, in this case.

Never­the­less, the docu­ment is well-struc­tu­red with notes in the appen­dix and a biblio­gra­phy, howe­ver, both are quite modest. The main fault would be its biblio­gra­phy that is not refe­ren­ced in the text, which forces the work to be clas­si­fied more as a crea­tion rather than a construction.
