Churchill Park, St. John's

The neighbourhood of Churchill Park in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador is located in the city's east end; the neighbourhood is bordered by Freshwater Road to the west, Empire Avenue to the south, Kenna's Hill and Torbay Roads to the east and Elizabeth Avenue to the north. Its main east-west thoroughfares are Elizabeth Avenue and Empire Avenue, its main north-south thoroughfares are Portugal Cove Road and Allandale Road; the neighbourhood borders the campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland to the north, as a result, it is home to a sizable student population. The area is made up of single-family homes built in the 1950s and 1960s; the area was the first modern suburb of the city of St. John's, one of the first residential suburbs in all of Canada, with development plans dating back as early as 1944, it was planned to be a "garden city," with single-family homes on small cul-de-sacs, generous lots, serviced with nearby parks and trails. Post-Confederation, development of the area changed to include social housing blocks and housing cooperatives, which remain today in the west end of Churchill Park.

The architecture and design was planned by Paul Meschino. Churchill Park is home to the Churchill Square shopping centre, the area's main commercial centre. Bell Aliant's main switching station for the city is located in Churchill Park. City parks include Kelly's Brook Park, Lions' Park, Larch Place Park and St. Patrick's Park, along with its namesake Churchill Park. Due to its proximity to the university campus, many of the homes in the west end of the neighbourhood are rented out to students, thus making it the city's principal student ghetto, its proximity to campus makes renting costs higher than other areas of the city, such as Rabbittown or Georgestown. Houses in the west end of the neighbourhood are small bungalows and social housing projects; the east end is much more affluent, with larger houses and an established and less transient population.

Churchill Park is close to the Churchill Square shopping area which has higher end boutiques, small grocery stores and independent offices for finance and lifestyle companies; the primary student ghetto is in an area with increasing prices.

Industrial change in occupied Japan

Japanese industry leaders began to turn their manufacturing establishment around after World War II under the American occupation. The most popular Japanese radio program in the 1950s is reputed to have been "Quality for Foremen." This emphasis on shop-floor leadership began through the intervention of three civil communications engineers who were part of the American occupation: Frank Polkinghorn, Charles Protzman, both from AT&T, Homer Sarasohn of MIT's Radiation Laboratory, who headed the occupation's Civil Communications Section. The Japanese had been trying to introduce scientific management practices, common in America, since 1913, their failure to make changes contributed to their losing World War II. Japanese industries' leadership had been purged by the MacArthur occupation; this removed 2 obstacles to change: the rigid social stratification of business, the lack of technical qualifications in both management and the workforce. Japanese management, according to Bunzaemon Inoue was "all line, no staff."

The CCS section introduced seminars for electronics industry leaders in 1949, expanded versions of these CCS Seminars as they were called, may have stimulated some of the interest in the "Quality for Foreman" show. According to Kenneth Hopper, the Japanese were attempting to copy the American practice of "bottom up management," although the CCS seminar did not use the term, introduced by Peter Drucker in the mid-1950s; the kacho system was evolved as the unique Japanese way of moving responsibility to the lowest acceptable level. "Essentially a kacho is responsible for an area of activity. In a large factory making electrical consumer goods, he might be in charge of white goods... production in all its aspects.... The strength of the kacho system knows or should know everything that goes on beneath and above him...: company policy, relations with customers and suppliers, information about the competition, all activities on the shop floor."The CCS seminar was developed in 1949 and presented by the Americans in Tokyo.

Their training events continued until 1974. Other vital elements of the CCS seminars included: flexibility and cross-departmental teamwork. Hopper further notes that a lecture series on statistical quality control by W. Edwards Deming and the work of Joseph M. Juran were vital elements of what came to be known as the Japanese economic miracle. While this comment in no way resolves a controversy about the genesis of Japan’s postwar industrial resurrection, his discussion throws light on the chronology of Western contributions to that effort.
