This study examines perceptions of exisiting and desired patterns of organizational behavior in MNCs in various countries. The major finding is that despite the numerous differences in organizational behavior patterns between Japan and other nations, four critical managerial patterns are perceived identically by Japanese and non-Japanese employees—leadership, decision making, communication, and group behavior. These findings enable the authors to cite types of training needed for subsidiaries in Japan and for interaction between subsidiaries and their environment.
