Abstract

A comparison is drawn between Japanese private and Japanese public sector workers using a research instrument which captures both personal life values and existing workplace values. The aim of the research is to test whether the values present within public sector organisations can help to explain the reported difficulties in implementing and practicing continuous improvement within the Japanese public sector, despite the assumed national ‘cultural fit’.
