This paper makes use of data extracted from the management questionnaire in the 1998 Workplace and Employee Relations Survey to examine the prevalence of ‘Japanese’ management policies and practices in workplaces in the manufacturing sector in Britain and to analyse the extent to which the likelihood that these policies and practices are present may be explained by the ownership of the workplace. The investigation finds that wholly owned British manufacturing plants do adopt ‘Japanese’ management policies and practices, although not to the same extent as those workplaces that are partially or wholly overseas-owned. There is evidence that the likelihood of some of these policies and practices being present at the workplace increases with overseas ownership of the workplace.Asian Business & Management (2004) 3, 39–56. doi:10.1057/palgrave.abm.9200069
