   schema:description "Today, Japan is the most influential economy in Asia and the second largest economy in the world. Japanese consumers are among the richest in the world, and the Japanese market still provides profitable investment opportunities. Not only are the Japanese able to adopt Western ideas and techniques without problems but they also maintain a very unique perspective of the world. Japanese management practices are no exception. And this outstanding new book, Understanding Japanese Management Practices, gives you and other international managers an in-depth look at Japanese management practices and how these can be implemented into Western corporations. It examines the cultural foundations of Japanese management and explains the most famous Japanese business concepts, such as kaizen, just-in-time, and lifetime employment. It then provides practical advice on how to successfully enter and position Western products in the Japanese market. Finally, it provides an advice on how to negotiate successfully with Japanese business partners and reveals what Western managers can learn from Japanese management practices. Japanese management practices have had an enormous influence on Western management practices over the past few decades. Many Japanese management practices have become a standard in Western firms. This book will undoubtedly guide you through Japanese business practices and how these practices help to improve business processes and to increase quality and efficiency in numerous corporations worldwide. It will also help you learn more about what Japanese management is and how do Japan's management practices differ from those in the West."@en ;
