The application is in the area of organisational behaviour and management and more specifically project management processes when developing computerised information systems. The potential contributions of LST are manifold. Examples of contributions are the following: The focus of this paper is not on the results of the specific study per se, but on the considerations of applying LST in obtaining material and in the analyses of this empirical material.

In contrast, their Japanese counterparts, Honda, Nissan, and Toyota Motors all recorded hefty growth in profits while their stock prices soared during the same period.
Toyota Motors, the second largest automaker, so far, said that it will post record earnings for its fiscal year ending on March 31,as its sales grow across all key regions. Toyota is actually expected to overtake GM in market share in the upcoming year of its operations for the first time.
This paper will make an attempt to review the strategies pursued by the major automobile manufacturing companies in the U.
Specifically, this paper will carry out a comparative analysis of various performance measures including growth rates, cost structures, profitability, return on investments, management efficiency, product-mix, and design and quality standards for GM and Toyota and evaluate their ability to cope with and adapt to a fast changing global competitive landscape.
Increased globalization, free trade, limited domestic growth opportunities, and the fierce competitive economic landscape have forced overseas carmakers operating outside their country of origin, specifically the U.
Foreign firms, by in large, usually choose among an array of decision attributes, such as product design and quality and standardization, market share, customer-orientation, research and development, continuous process improvement, low employee turnover, training, lower cost, competitive or reduced prices, and the like as their strategic production, marketing, and financial tools to gain access to and compete in the United States.
A number of studies have documented some of the unique marketing and business practices employed by firms of different national origin to penetrate and get a foothold in the U. Studies of a more general nature have documented evidence of a differentiated approach in and use of strategic decision choices by firms with different national origins.
For instance, ErramilliKogut and Singhand Nohria and Garcia-Pontsuggest strong home country effects on strategic choice. Thomas and Geoffrey investigated why Japanese firms tended to favor market share over short-term profits more than U.
Underlying the issue of national identities on strategic choices is subject to debate over the theory of the firm as to whether product markets or institutions determine optimal strategy.
The underpinning of the neoclassical economic view is based on the idea that the global industry environment determines the optimal strategy i. An important distinction in the predictions of these two views is whether firms have distinct national identities in choosing different strategies, while competing in the same global industry environment.
Thomas and Geoffrey provide evidence that the home country environment and in particular, the institutional bargaining power between owners and labor in strategy decisions, is instrumental in differences in strategic choices. As hypothesized, higher levels of self-esteem, an innovative orientation, and job involvement, and a lower level of need for clarity predicted one-year later supervisory ratings of job performance.
Implications for the improvement of person-job models of performance for knowledge workers are discussed.

Why are some engineers better performers than others? Organizational researchers have generally studied individual characteristics such as personality traits and job attitudes to predict job performance Simonton, The first is the fit between the demands of the job and the abilities of the employees, whereby the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the employees are related to the requirements of the job situation.
This second type of person-job fit tends to focus on the well-being, satisfaction, and level of adjustment of employees.o Describe the principles of change and organisational change processes and the different approaches possible 14 o Identify and appraise real life examples of the organisational change process Explain external and internal triggers of change and innovation o Appraise these triggers of change and innovation Learning outcome: 5.
