Japanese-style vs. American-style

The American-style suggestion system stresses the suggestion's economic benefits and provides economic incentives.

The Japanese-style suggestion system stresses the morale boosting benefits of positive employee participation.

Example →  Canon's Suggestion System

Even though both the Japanese and American systems are called suggestion systems, they are totally different. The Japanese system has all employees involved in continuous improvement activities, while in America it is a cost savings system where small ideas are not welcome.

According to Masaaki Imai, the author of Kaizen, Japanese managers have more leeway in implementing employee suggestions than Western counterparts. Japanese managers are willing to go along with a change if it contributes to any of the seven goals of the suggestion system. This is a sharp contrast to the Western manager's almost exclusive concern with the cost of the change and its economic payback.
