ABSTRACT
The article refers to a study on quality management and the effect of corporate culture on management practices and the performance of manufacturing companies. Researchers Michael Naor of George Mason University and Susan Goldstein, Kevin Linderman, and Roger Schroeder of the University of Minnesota examined six relationships involving culture and performance and the infrastructure and core-quality practices. Their research methodology included mediation and moderation models as well as data from manufacturing plants in Japan, Finland, Germany, Sweden, South Korea, and the United States. The study suggests that management commitment and supplier relationships improve a company's performance.
