Managers in the Making

Careers, Development and Control in Corporate Britain and Japan

by Storey, John; Edwards, Paul; Sisson, Keith

Using original data, Managers in the Making presents a thorough analysis of the processes by which managers are made in Britain and Japan. It provides a detailed comparative study of the careers, training, developmental experience and job demands of managers in eight named companies, matching British firms with Japanese counterparts. Using qualitative and quantitative data the authors offer an understanding of these processes within organizational, sectoral and national contexts. Managers' perceptions, reactions and concerns are recorded and analysed throughout.
