Description

The recent financial and corporate governance scandal that engulfed Olympus, one of Japan's best known companies, together with Japan's stagnant economy of the past 20 years and its demotion from being the world's second largest economy, has raised questions about the style of management within Japanese organisations. This book provides a unique, insider's perspective of the crisis of Japanese management that has contributed towards Japan's current economic woes. It contains true analyses of how giants such as Toyota, Canon, Nippon Steel, Hitachi and Olympus are really managed. Moreover, the author argues controversially that Japan's economic growth in the future will depend on a radical reformation of its management style and practices.
