This book covers the most relevant and recent developments in the car industry internationally. It includes a rich cross-border comparative analysis but also presents an in-depth national-based case study analysis covering recent transformations in the car industry in European and non-European countries. Both parts assess the extent to which recent organisational practices represent a pattern of organisational phenomenon known as 'lean production'. In particular, the book examines the impact of these developments on the organisation of labour, and the quality of working life in the sector worldwide."@en ;
