leading automobile manufacturers over the world, with about 200,000 employees.
Ford Vietnam Company
Founded in September 1995, Ford Vietnam Company is a joint venture between Ford Motor
Group (75%) and Song Cong Diesel Company (25%) with a total capital of private to date is
125 million USD. Ford Vietnam's Assembly Plant in Hai Duong province was opened in

management. The total number of employees at Ford Vietnam is over 600 employees with

There is emphasis on democratic management by CEO. The employees are grouped into
teams with a team leader. The team is encouraged to have a name or develop an image to
share the sense of identity amongst team members and with outsiders. The team is given
targets to meet but is allowed to decide how it will go about meeting those targets. The team
decides how it will organise work in its own area (i.e. the physical layout of the area). Alongside
each team areas there are meeting with chairs grouped in a circle. In this area, there are
charts showing the performance of each team. The teams meet to discuss what is going well
and what is going badly and to suggest ideas for improvement. The team then has the
responsibility for putting their ideas into practice.
Everyone within a team has one or more accountabilities (i.e. recruitment, drawing up rotas,
keeping track of sales targets etc) which are shared out by the team members at their daily or
weekly team meetings. All the team members at different times act as co-ordinator to the
person responsible for taking the snap decisions that are frequently necessary in a busy
