Japanese Business Management: Restructuring for Low Growth and Globalization

Front Cover
Harukiyo Hasegawa, Glenn D. Hook
Routledge, 1998 - Business & Economics - 246 pages
In this study the views of Japan's leading experts on the globalization of Japanese business, management and industrial relations explain how traditional Japanese-style management is responding to the changes following the collapse of the bubble economy. The areas covered include the changes made in management itself inside Japan and also how it is adapting itself when transferred overseas. The book demonstrates how management is moving towards a hybrid type in overseas operations and towards a western-style in Japan, where contractual principles are beginning to be given greater weight.
