Title: Comparative research and the business system approach
an introduction
Author: Rocha, Robson
Abstract: This paper has two distinct aims. First, I would like to present and discuss the national business systems (NBS) framework ( Whitley, 1992,1992a,1996,1997). NBS framework concerns how national variations in economic co-ordination and control systems facilitate and constrain organisational change. The NBS is not widely known in the Latin America countries, and this paper intends to shortly present it The second aim is to question, based on the NBS approach, some of the assumptions about the diffusion of a new universal template for organising work (Lean Production) and its agent, the multinational corporation.
