Enhancing productivity and quality (P&Q) is critical to supporting the development of industries and services, ensuring quality economic growth. In particular, this is an indispensable step in the process of developing Vietnam's economy. The enhancement of P&Q has the potential for Vietnamese industries to compete in international markets and global value chains. Japan and Singapore have different approaches to designing and implementing national movements for P&Q improvement. Both countries initially learned management knowledge and technology from abroad, but later developed their own models and systems to improve P&Q through testing, customization, and institutionalization. Eventually both Japan and Singapore succeeded in popularizing the P&Q movement nationwide. Based on the analysis of the P&Q improvement process of Japan and Singapore, this study is expected to provide useful experiences for P&Q training in Vietnam.
