Research on Japanese Enterprise Culture

Xiaoxia Zeng


Japanese enterprise culture, which originated from Chinese Confucianism, is the intrinsic motivation behind the growth in what is termed the Japanese “Economic Miracle”. Japanese enterprise culture which embodies the characteristics of home, team spirit and humanism, has it’s limitations in being representative of the successful East Asia enterprise culture. Within the
construction of world culture, we should draw lessons from the successful experience of Japanese culture and absorb the essence of our traditional values to achieve unity of form and connotation expressed by the enterprise culture. Japan rebounded quickly after World War Ⅱ, becoming the second economic power in the world, which had a significant relationship with the unique enterprise
culture. It has realistic significance and important reference value if we learn the development process, analyze the connotation, compare the characteristics and dissect both the advantages and disadvantages typified by this Japanese enterprise culture.
