Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This study reports the results of a survey on the benefits from ISO and the impact of their incentives on their benefits from ISO in Taiwan. The empirical result indicates that adopting ISO brings registered Taiwanese plants significant help in enhancing employee's productivity, systemization with good documents and data, better quality control, raising competing ability in sales, verifying internal auditing system, and clear managerial responsibilities. The effects of incentives on benefits from ISO are also statistically significant. With more positive attitudes, implementing ISO could bring companies more help in enhancing employee's productivity and clear managerial responsibilities. General lessons can be learned about the ways in which ISO implementation is managed, or should be managed, in developing countries.
