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.

根据这个信息定位到文章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.

这句话是想表明西方商人因为日本汽车制造商的成功,所以也愿意采取战略伙伴关系。A选项,some of the possible reasons文章未提及。B选项,cite a specific case就是日本汽车制造商,convinced Western business experts of the value of practice 就是文章led to an unquestioning belief within Western management circles in the value of strategic partnerships的同义替换,表明了西方管理者相信战略伙伴关系的价值。C选项,describe specific steps文章未提及。D选项,introduce a paradox与文意不符。E选项,need for Western managers to change their relationships与文章逻辑相反,文章表明是建立战略伙伴关系,因此就不会需要更换商业伙伴。选 B

    一、题型:probably in order to ...功能题(就是问highlight部分是要干嘛?有什么样的功能?)
    
    二、方法:
    1、功能题里的问关系的题目:注意否定关系是陷阱,要注意限定关系(常考)
    2、经常挑1个词句问功能的:要联系上下文观点性的句子,有可能是解释说明前面或后面的观点
    
    三、回文定位(前面那一句在前一道题已经考了,不大可能会在这道题再考,我们看后面那一句或者看highlight部分所在的那一句话):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.
    
    四、分析以上那句: highlight部分是以上这个句子的核心主语,所以重点就是跟在它后面的谓语和宾语部分的内容:has led to an unquestioning belief within Western management circles in the value of strategic partnerships. 联系上一部分都是在讲strategic partnership的,还有本句核心关键词的 belief 、in the value of strategic partnerships
    
    定位选项B:belief对应convinced,the value of strategic partnerships对应the value of a certain business practice(感受一下RC阅读的同义改写,由具象变成抽象,由具体变成笼统的,例如strategic partnerships对应a certain business practice)

    E 应该是错在该转换的是公司和外部合作伙伴的关系,不是managers和外部合作伙伴的关系
    而且B选项的内容在定位句最后出现了,应该是更合适的

    明明E说的是和伙伴换一下关系,而不是换伙伴。
