In recent years, Western business managers have been heeding the exhortations of business journalists and academics to move their companies toward long‐term, collaborative “strategic partnerships” with their external business partners (e.g., suppliers). The experts’ advice comes as a natural reaction to numerous studies conducted during the past decade that compared Japanese production and supply practices with those of the rest of the world. The link between the success of a certain well-known Japanese automaker and its effective management of its suppliers, for example, has led to an unquestioning belief within Western management circles in the value of strategic partnerships. Indeed, in the automobile sector all three United States manufacturers and most of their European competitors have launched programs to reduce their total number of suppliers and move toward having strategic partnerships with a few.

However, new research concerning supplier relationships in various industries demonstrates that the widespread assumption of Western managers and business consultants that Japanese firms manage their suppliers primarily through strategic partnerships is unjustified. Not only do Japanese firms appear to conduct a far smaller proportion of their business through strategic partnerships than is commonly believed, but they also make extensive use of “market-exchange” relationships, in which either party can turn to the marketplace and shift to different business partners at will, a practice usually associated with Western manufacturers.

文章结构结构层次划分:

结构1:西方管理者听取建议采用“战略伙伴关系”

①建议来源: numerous studies

②link→ strategic partnership

③ automobile sector→  strategic partnerships

结构2:unjustified assumption

① 战略伙伴关系数量少

② market-exchange relationships



第1题 

这是一道主旨题,做主旨题一定要看结构句。

这篇文章共两段,第一段结构句指出西方管理者的态度,他们听取建议采取战略伙伴关系。第一段也是围绕着战略伙伴关系的正面态度展开。

而第二段的结构句指出作者的态度,研究表明有关日本公司采取战略伙伴关系的假设不合理,所以作者认为战略伙伴关系的影响并不都是正面的。第二段作者就从两个方面支持这个假设如何不合理:一是日本公司更少采用战略伙伴关系;二是他们使用市场交换关系。A选项,examining economic factors文章未提及,并没有具体的经济因素存在,文章也不是在检验因素。B选项,discussing the relative merits of strategic partnerships,作者对战略伙伴关系的态度为负,所以不会讨论它的好处,根据文章的Tone(语气,态度)可以排除这个选项。C选项,a widely held assumption about how Japanese firms operate 就是文章讨论的topic,战略伙伴关系,challenging the validity就是文章第二段的主要内容,也是文章的主要态度。所以这一题选C。D,文章没有解释西方公司在采取战略伙伴关系战略上行动迟缓。E,文章没有指出不同。所以选C

    越发感受到RC问题结构大于内容,拘泥于细节只会越来越绕
    P1:西方企业逐渐认识到和外部商业伙伴建立长效的strategic partnerships的重要性。为什么呢?因为专家认为日本企业能成功就是用了strategic partnerships。
    P2:然而事实上,日本并没有无脑地使用strategic partnerships。
    知道了文章的结构,其他细节读不懂也没关系,做题真的不影响。
