This paper compares management styles between the West and Japan and Indonesia and makes suggestions for avoiding problems that may arise as a result of these differences. The paper first explains that because Indonesian culture is very similar to Japanese culture and because there is limited information on Indonesian culture, a description of Japanese business culture is sufficient for a comparison between Western business culture and the business culture of Japan and Indonesia. The paper then prevents a detailed look at the Japanese way of doing business and contrasts this to the American way of doing business and makes suggestions on how best to minimize and understand these differences so that problems in management can be avoided.

From the Paper:

"Indonesian and Japanese culture tends to make their businesses less dynamic and adaptable, and hence less competitive, than those of the Western world. This was perfectly acceptable as long as the two cultures had limited business dealings, but as globalization spreads, the cultural influences that define the Japanese and Indonesian people are beginning to be phased out of business, in order to allow their companies to survive and some cases dominate the global economy as massive multinationals. As cultures collide, the capitalistic approach already partially embraced by the rest is proving to be the method of doing business that is most likely to form the over-culture that links businessmen together."
