Empirical study on transferability of kaizen practices in Vietnamese manufacturing companies

Phan Chi Anh, Tran Thi Hoang Yen, Yoshiki Matsui

    Abstract

    This study examines the link between Kaizen practices and different culture dimensions in Vietnamese manufacturing companies. The study follows the cultural framework suggested by House et al. (2004) and three typical Kaizen practices implemented in Vietnam such as Small Group Problem Solving, Process Control and Employee’s Suggestion. Statistical techniques such as path analysis and regression analysis are applied to analyze the data collected from 124 Vietnamese manufacturing companies through a questionnaire survey during 2011-2012. The findings indicate that there is positive correlation on Kaizen practices and culture’s dimensions in relation to performance of manufacturing companies in Vietnam.
