Innovationen und Gewerkschaften: Deutschland — Japan — by Knut Wolfgang Nörr (auth.), Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Horst

By Knut Wolfgang Nörr (auth.), Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Horst Albach (eds.)

Es gehört zu den nach wie vor nicht ganz geklärten Phänomenen der jüngsten Wirt­ schaftsgeschichte, wie es Japan gelingen konnte, innerhalb von vierzig Jahren zu der nach den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika führenden Wirtschaftsrnacht der Welt zu werden. Für die verantwortlichen Top-Manager deutscher Unternehmen warfare bis zum Ende der sechziger Jahre eine eher herablassende Einstellung gegenüber der japanischen Konkurrenz typisch: "Die Japaner sind nur als Imitatoren intestine - der Imi­ tator wird immer dem Innovator hinterherhinken!". Die Geschichte hat die deutschen Unternehmer und die Welt eines Besseren - oder sollte ich sagen: eines Schlechte­ ren? - belehrt: die japanischen Unternehmen gehören heute zu den innovativsten der Welt. Der Mythos, daß die Japaner gute Imitatoren, aber schlechte Innovatoren sei­ en, hat sich als das erwiesen, was once er von Anfang an warfare: ein Mythos - vielleicht auch von den Japanern nicht ohne Schmunzeln nicht bekämpft - so gelang ihnen der strategische Sprung an die entrance der Innovatoren in der Welt nur umso schneller. Für unsere japanischen Freunde wie für uns bleibt die wissenschaftliche Aufgabe, die Ursachen zu erkennen und die Faktoren zu isolieren, die zu diesem Erfolg in der Entwicklung der japanischen Wirtschaft geführt haben. Nur wenn guy die Be­ stimmungsfaktoren für diesen EI/olg erkennt, wird guy auch in der Lage sein, den Weg in die Zukunft richtig zu prognostizieren, den die japanischen Unternehmen zu gehen sich angeschickt haben.

Aufstieg — Anreiz — Auslese: Karriermuster und by Angelika Ernst

By Angelika Ernst

Kulturen finden ihren Ausdruck nicht nur in gesellschaftlichen Normsetzun gen und Werthaltungen, sondern auch in den jeweiligen Strukturen und Funktionen von Organisationen und Institutionen einer Gesellschaft. Aus tauschprozesse auf dem Arbeitsmarkt, das Ausmass der Formalisierung, Stan dardisierung und Spezialisierung von Arbeitsaufgaben, der Zuschnitt von horizontalen und vertikalen Karrieren sind immer auch an Regeln gebunden, die gesellschaftliche Anerkennung finden. Betriebliche Leistungsanforderun gen und Karrierestrukturen enthalten Mitgliedschaftsentwurfe und Erwar tungsmuster, in denen sich gesellschaftsspezifische Wertvorstellungen und Teilnahmeregeln widerspiegeln. Die Bildungs- und Arbeitsstrukturen in Deutschland sorgen noch immer dafur, dass sich die Mitgliedschaftsentwurfe der Ausbildungsabsolventen im Spannungsfeld zwischen Berufszentrismus und Betriebszentrismus eher an der Berufs- als an der Betriebszugehorigkeit orientieren; Karrieren sind we sentlich an den Nachweis beruflicher Kompetenzen und an die Kontinuitat beruflicher Tatigkeiten gebunden. Dagegen leiten japanische Absolventen ihre Identitat wesentlich starker von den Chancen des innerbetrieblichen Sta tuserwerbs ab. Die enge Verknupfung von Statuskarriere und Lernkarriere sichert die organisatorische Effizienz betriebsinterner Selektion und Alloka tion, den Wettbewerbscharakter innerbetrieblicher Aufstiegsprozesse und die Lern- und Arbeitsmotivation der Beschaftigten. Dieser Anreizcharakter der Karrierestrukturen japanischer Unternehmen steht im Mittelpunkt der vorlie genden Studie. Sie fragt nach dem Zusammenhang von Qualifizierung und innerbetrieblichem Aufstieg, der internen Logik betrieblicher Karrieresysteme und der Tragfahigkeit dieser Systeme vor dem Hintergrund veranderter oko nomischer und sozialer Rahmenbedingungen. Angelika Ernst setzt mit dieser Untersuchung ihre bisherigen Forschungs arbeiten zur japanischen Arbeitsmarkt- und Beschaftigungspolitik fortress. Vor allem ihre segmentationstheoretischen Analysen des japanischen Arbeits marktes (vgl. Ernst 1986) und ihre Untersuchung zur Beschaftigungsanpas sung japanischer Unternehmen in Rationalisierungs- und Krisenphasen (vg
