Japan's Winning Margins Summary


Japan's Winning Margins: Management, Training and Education by John Lorriman

Akio Morita, Chairman of Sony, has been quoted as saying:`...[the West] does not understand what management is about. In Japan a manager's role is very simple; it is to develop the skills of his staff so that they can find better ways of satisfying the customers.' This book aims to give the West a more balanced and realistic understanding of the key reasons for Japan's success. It will be of value to those intending to do business with Japanese companies, to those wishing to compete, or even just survive against the nation which is the world's most successful economic power. Written in plain and accessible language, the lessons for the West are spelled out clearly: education, management concerned with developing people's potential, and relevant workplace training are the `secrets' of Japanese success. This book is intended for business people, industrialists, educationalists, training specialists, scientists, general reader interested in Japan and Japanese economic and technological success.
