Formatted abstract
Japanese corporations are in an evolutionary stage, and their management practices are significantly changing.

In the late 1960s throughout 1970s, corporations made remarkable successes in the world wide business community. Their strength was supported by the unique management. style in Japan, the backbone features of which include the lifetime employment system, the age seniority system and the enterprise labour union.

In the 1980s, various factors affected management practices of these corporations. Two main factors have been the effect of business globalization and changing composition of the work force. Corporations have made various adjustments to accommodate these changes because they have found that they can no longer rely solely on the traditional management practices.

In the late 1980s and early 19905, some Japanese corporations started to accept an idea of .corporate philanthropy and the need to be a "Good Corporate citizen." Corporate philanthropy may be a critical success factor as corporations approach the 21st century because it aligns the business mission closely with the views of the younger employees.
