Japanese-Style Management Quick View

Japanese-Style Management

The very 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.

Business is Beautiful Quick View

Business is Beautiful

The hard art of standing apart
Accepted wisdom tells us either that business should come before pleasure, or that the two should never be mixed. Business, it seems, was never intended to be pleasurable. During an economic crisis, in particular, business is easy to portray as a cold, unforgiving environment. But business isn’t like this. Business is people. People who come together to achieve more than is possible individually. Achievement is easily measured through profit, but value is a much bigger concept. A bank in India has been awarded a Nobel Peace Prize. A man in Denmark has turned his love and compassion for his deaf wife into a business that helps millions, as well as makes millions. Business provides countless examples of companies that have achieved greatness; companies for whom profit is necessary but not sufficient condition for success. These stories and the business lessons (often unmeasurable) they provide are brilliantly captured in this highly original book. Author:  Jean-Baptiste Danet, Nick Liddell, Dorothy MacKenzie and Tony Allen
