Abstract:     
The globalization of industry and commerce creates an imperative to understand how business leaders from different parts of the world make decisions. A recent study used the Decision Styles Inventory to compare the decision making of American business leaders with those of counterparts from Asia's two largest economies - Japan and the People's Republic of China. American, Chinese and Japanese business leaders were each found to have a distinctive decision making style that reflects differing needs for achievement, affiliation, and power. The implications for further research and international business practice are considered.
